The use of technology plays a controversial role in the comprehensive school counseling program. While there are pros and cons to what technology brings it should be monitored to ensure its safety. There are also ethical issues when using technology as a part of the CSCP. Positive uses of technology today are the use of an electronic portfolio for the professional school counselor. This may be mandatory for licensure in the state of residency. The use of email and social media offer different platforms for communications. The ease of access for school counseling data will progressively facilitate and enhance the creation, development, and implementation of the CSCP (Dollarhide and Saginak, 2017). On the other hand, the use of technology is not free of risk or harm. Risk and harm to students, parents, and counselors will need to be evaluated when determining if the pros outweigh the cons in its use with the CSCP. Cyberbullying is the new choice for those individuals who believe they can either remain anonymous or prefer a non- face to face forum in which to inflict harm to others. Technology also opens the doors to individuals with malicious intent, such as phedophiles (Dollarhide & Saginak, 2017). 4) Student describes actions plans and closing the achievement gap action plans and identifies essential elements in each type of action plan. Students are encouraged, not required, to attach a sample action plan that you have created in any of your courses as a sample, if possible (e.g., the School Counseling Operational Plan for Effectiveness-- SCOPE).
Any action plan should include elements essential to the CSCP. The core curriculum action plan should include the goal, grade level it is addressing, the lesson to be presented, and the ASCA domain and competency to be addressed. It should also consist of projected start and end date and any process, perception, and outcome data as a result of the action plan (ASCA, 2012). The small group action plan and closing-the-gap action plan are very similar and my very slightly. They should contain the goal, target group, and data used to identify students. It is recommended that the school counselor leading the action plan understand the ASCA domain and competency that is being addressed, what resources will be utilized, and the type of activity will be applied and in what manner. Tracking of the process, perception, and outcome data is vital in determining the result of the action plan (ASCA, 2012).
