The Indiana School Counselor and Administrator Collaboration Institute is soliciting proposals for presentations promoting critical inquiry and solutions in PK-12 schools to better address students’ social, emotional, academic, and career needs. More specifically, the ISCACI invites inservice and preservice professionals in areas of school counseling and educational leadership to submit a proposal in the domains of student success, college and career readiness, community engagement, educational equity, principal/counselor roles and relationships. As this institute promotes counselor/administrator collaboration in PK-12 schools, priority will be given to proposals which incorporate both roles (i.e., school counselor and administrator collaboration on restorative justice practices). Presentations showcase practical solutions, current research, or skills of value to counselors and administrators, pre-K to post-secondary, as well as district personnel, graduate students, and educational leadership and counselor education faculty.

Proposals of a political, marketing or for-profit nature will NOT be accepted.

SESSION IDEAS:

  • Student Success
    • Social/Emotional Needs
    • Academic Needs
  • Community Engagement
  • College & Career Readiness
  • Educational Equity & Social Justice
  • Principal/Counselor Relationships
    • Vision
    • Roles & Use of Time
    • Practical Solutions
    • Collaboration

 

Deadline for Submission: March 27, 2020

Notice regarding proposal acceptance will be sent via e-mail by April 30, 2020.

All communications regarding your breakout session will come to you directly, and you will be responsible for sharing it with a co-presenter (if any).

  • IF YOU MUST CANCEL – If after you have been chosen to present you find out that you must cancel please plan to have someone in mind to take your place.  This may be your Co-Presenter(s), if you have one, or someone else qualified to present your material.
