“Every person who works at a school is an educator. Teachers educate about subject material. Administrators educate about a vision and a mission. A campus supervisor educates about school safety. Counselors educate about access and equity. I believe counselors play a vibrant role in the overall health of a school. Dr. Trish Hatch has organized a tremendous resource in The Use of Data in School Counseling. With years of experience in counseling leadership, Dr. Hatch offers a sound and practical approach to transforming a school counseling program from a static, interactive support system to a dynamic, pro-active, data-driven student support team. All schools can benefit when counselors take an instructional leadership approach to help students realize their potential and use intentional guidance to promote student resiliency. Whether you are new to counseling, work with counseling or are an administrator, this book will give you a unique perspective on the role of counseling and how it can support not only students, but the whole school community.”
