NKU to host Evidence-Based School Counseling Conference

Event is March 26-27

FLBB_NKU-LogoHIGHLAND HEIGHTS, Ky. (March 20, 2015) — The Northern Kentucky University School Counseling Program is collaborating with the NKU Center for Educator Excellence and the Ronald H. Fredrickson Center for School Counseling Outcome Research and Evaluation (CSCORE) at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst to present the third annual national Evidence-Based School Counseling Conference March 26-27 at the NKU METS Center for Corporate Learning in Erlanger.

The event, which is expected to draw attendees from 29 states across the country, focuses on equipping professional school counselors with the skills to choose evidence-based interventions and the tools to evaluate the effectiveness of existing programs by measuring the impact of interventions on critical measurements such as test scores, grade-point-averages, post-secondary going rates, attendance rates, office referrals and drop-out rates.
