Annual OSCA Summer Institute

Each year, the Oklahoma School Counselor Association hosts an exciting professional development opportunity on the first Friday in June.

The OSCAR (the Oklahoma School Counseling Accountability Report) is part of the TLE Evaluation tool for school counselors. The OSCAR is also a powerful instrument to show how your school counseling program is making a difference with students.

OSCA offers a ½-day workshop on the how create an OSCAR. We also extend the learning in the workshop so that you will have personalized professional development at your site to help you construct an OSCAR. There is no cost to attend the workshop for OSCA members.

Participants receive professional development points and CEUs.  Lunch is served.

The 2018 OSCA Institute was held at Norman High School from 10:30-1:30.  It was led by Dr. Michelle Taylor (Adair Public Schools - High School) and Missy Smith (Norman Public Schools - Elem).

The First OSCA Summer Institute

We held our First Annual School Counseling Institute on Saturday, August 1. Thirteen school counselors made history in learning how to use data and discovering the data points that are most impactful to ensure that students in Oklahoma graduate college and career ready.

Rebecca Barry, the only school counselor in Oklahoma who has a RAMP (Recognized American School Counselor Model Program), along with Dr. Mary Waters, Dr. Bea Keller-Dupree, and Erica Harris, co-facilitated the one-day Institute.  Participants left feeling confident that they could develop an OSCAR.
