    10. 10. Mark Engberg and Aliza Gilbert have synthesized the results of data derived from the High School Longitudinal Study of 2009 (HSLS: 09), a federally-funded, nationally representative, study that surveyed students beginning in the ninth grade with follow-up surveys administered as students transition to postsecondary education and the workforce. 21,000 ninth graders in 940 schools were surveyed using a multi-stage design frame that allows for generalization to more than 4.2 million students. More than 15 years of evidence-based research involving millions of students was utilized to determine what actually works in schools towards increasing college-going rate. 13
    11. 11.  Organizational environment of a high school is an important determinant of the college-going culture.  Counseling department functions as an important intermediary in enhancing college opportunities.  The percentage of hours spent on college counseling as well as the average counselor to student caseload of a high school were significantly related to the collegegoing culture of a school.  Counseling resources utilized significantly influenced four-year college-going rates, including resources relegated toward financial aid assistance, college fairs, and course-taking opportunities at four-year colleges. 14

    13. 13. YOUR TURN... Think critically as you read through the list of influence factors from Engberg and Gilbert‘s research (2013). Rank each – high, medium, low – regarding the positive impact that the action, strategy, or attitude has on students’ college going rate. Decide which priorities you would consider with your counseling team when you return home. You may collaborate and communicate with your table group!

    17. 17.  Attribution Theory: proposed that a person's own perceptions or attributions as to why they succeeded or failed, determines the amount of effort the person will engage in, in the future. When attributions of self lead to positive affect, such attributions should result in greater willingness to approach similar tasks in the future. This theory is also related to locus of control - Benard Weiner  Locus of control is the framework from Rotter's (1954) social-learning theory of personality. It refers to the extent to which individuals believe that they can control events that affect them. A person's "locus" (Latin for "place" or "location") is conceptualized as either internal (the person believes they can control their life) or external (meaning they believe that their decisions and life are controlled by environmental factors which they cannot influence). Individuals with a high internal locus of control believe that events in their life derive primarily from their own actions; for example, when receiving test results, people with an internal locus of control would praise or blame themselves and their abilities, whereas people with a high external locus of control would praise or blame the teacher or the test. - Julian B. Rotter, 1954

    19. 19. Email sent on November 7, 2013 Our Focus Our Involvement Loretta: Day two (State Board) presented interesting questions about the way schools will be able to use the LCFF money and if it will be going to the students that the money represents. School counselors could be viewed instrumental in this process, if they can demonstrate how to accurately identify and orchestrate key resources to help the Foster, poor and ELA populations. In our District, every below basic student under AB 1802 was electronically documented and was followed through with a series of questions with parents to determine individual need. In similar fashion, counselors can show their value and results in this latest scenario. I'm worried that the money will go to class size reduction and Superintendents' priorities, if counselors don't begin to show local school boards how they can make a difference. I heard nothing about professional development for school counselors at this last meeting, only teachers and admin. It would appear if sch. couns. are part of the equation in helping this population, receiving some monies to train sch. couns. in this process would be a beginning step in recognizing their place at the table.
