Greetings all and exciting NEWS,

The school counseling program responsibilities for the USBE have expanded in recent years.  Our leadership and professional development to over 1100 counselors in areas such as college and career readiness, Pathways, every student with individual planning, college applications and financial aid, 504 plans, bullying, suicide prevention, school climate, cultural responsive education, resiliency, STEM awareness for students, etc. creates a greater workload for us at USBE.

I am happy to announce some updates to the school counseling, equity, prevention section of Student Advocacy Services. We have hired Kim Herrera as the new school counseling specialist. Kim comes to USBE from Tooele School District. She has been actively involved with the USBE School Counseling Leadership Committee. She is advocate for students. Kim is well versed in school counseling from social/emotional supports for student to Plan for College and Career Readiness activities.

Holly Todd, Kim Herrera, and myself will be working together to oversee the School Counseling Programs across Utah. We will also are looking for new team members due to retirement of personnel and growth of programs. Within the next few weeks to a month, you will see job postings for two position openings. One job opening coming up will be for substance abuse prevention specialist. This specialist will support substance abuse prevention, resiliency review, and trauma informed care.  The other opening will be for a pro-social behavior specialist.  This prevention specialist will support bullying prevention, review discipline data, and evaluation resilient models.  Look for two several job announcements soon.

As a reminder, other School Counseling, Equity, Prevention Section team members:
Cathy Davis, Suicide Prevention Specialist
Momi Tuua, Equity/Advocacy Specialist

We are here to support you.

Ahéhee' (thanks)
