The School Counselors Collaborative @ MTSU, is a new initiative offering professional development for school counselors in PK-12 schools and districts in Tennessee. It is sponsored by the Center for Educational Media and Professional Development in partnership with the Professional Counseling Program at MTSU’s College of Education. We will hold SC Collaborative meetings during the school year, as well as a summer conference, the School Counselors Collaborative Summer Academy. The School Counselors Collaborative is part of a broader professional development initiative known as the PK-12 Collaborative @ MTSU, which also includes the ELL Collaborative.

The School Counselors Collaborative:
  • Is participant-driven, with school counselors identifying the topics of sessions based on their needs
  • Is collaborative with school counseling practitioners serving as presenters to share strategies, materials, programs, technology that have been successful for them
  • Is especially beneficial for districts with fewer resources and staff to support School Counselors
  • Promotes professional support networks and individual contacts across districts which is beneficial for districts with a small staff of School Counselors
  • Offers multiple sessions throughout the school year to address topics and apply PD immediately in the school settings
  • Is available at no charge to the participants
