5 Steps To A Strategic PlanHow Are We
Doing?
According to Forbes …
•
1. Determine where you are.
•
2. Identify what’s important
•
3. Define what you must achieve
•
4. Determine who is accountable
•
5. Review. Review. Review. (It’s never over.)
Strategic Plan – Getting Started(2012 –
2013)
1. Choose our 4 Main Goals
(Easy … ASCA’s 4 Program Components)
2. Review & Learn the ASCA National 3.0 Model Compare
it to our existing GF Counseling Program
3. Assess our strengths and weaknesses by using the
Program Audit
4. Under each MAIN GOAL …Identify gaps & ASCA
“Criteria” needed
5. Under each CRITERIA – Brainstorm ideas and activities
6. Sort it all out: Organize, Prioritize, and Set a
TIMELINE of activities

The Million $ Question….
What do we need from the administrative group
at the district level to keep the process moving
smoothly?
Garnering Support Continued
(Year 2)
1)
All counselors should be delivering core curriculum to ALL students.
2)
Based on our School Profiles (data collection) generated last year, each
counselor will be working on at least one “closing the gap” goal this year.
They will also collect data once the goal is implemented. Results reports
will be written and given to their principal upon completion. These goals
are focused around achievement, attendance or behavior and are data
driven.
3)
Each counselor will complete an annual agreement with their principal in
the first 2 months which will include their goal/s.
4)
GFPS Counselors will be able to show you how they make a difference
with students through sharing their results reports!
