On Monday, June 13th and Tuesday, June 14th, over 180 school counselors and school administrators from across the state participated in the inaugural Indiana School Counselor and Administrator Collaboration Institute (ISCACI) at the Ball State University Alumni Center.
Organized by Dr. Rachel Geesa, Assistant Clinical Professor of Educational Leadership and Dr. Theresa Kruczek, Professor of Educational Psychology and School Counseling, along with the National Center for Youth Issues, the ISCACI was a culmination of five years of work for educational leadership and school counseling faculty and a Lilly Endowment Grant for Comprehensive School Counseling Support.
The focus of the grant was to increase pre-service and in-service principals’ and school counselors’ knowledge through comprehensive training and integrative programs on collaboration between school counselors, educational leaders, stakeholders, and educators to promote healthy learning environments.
The ISCACI provided informative sessions related to collaboration to better meet all PK-12 student needs. Three nationally and internationally known speakers provided workshops and a keynote, and 28 local presenters shared knowledge and resources in breakout sessions during this exciting two-day event at Ball State.
