Thank you SO much for this post. This is timely in Colorado considering the pending implementation of a state rubric for evaluating counselor effectiveness, and the fact that far too many of us are burdened with "Inappropriate Duties" that render us less effective. Our "jobs" will literally lead to lower scores on some areas of the rubric. How (this is just one example) can we be evaluated on a guidance program when we are so often stuck not only coordinating, but proctoring, NWEA, NNAT, ACCESS for ELL, TCAP, and an increasing number of online state assessments? It's time for administrators to decide if comprehensive guidance and counseling programs ought to be valued, and if they are valued, allow them to exist by liberating us from secretarial and quasi-administrative duties that render effective implementation impossible. Counselors are easy targets for extra duties because we tend to be flexible, competent, team players. This, however, is not justification for preventing would-be effective comprehensive guidance and counseling programs.
