Expected to do everything EXCEPT work directly with students.

School Counselor (Current Employee)
Reno, NV

ProsA lot of great people work for WCSD and the pay is fair. Plenty of opportunities for lateral movement if you end up at a school you don't like.

ConsCommunity does not support the school district and leadership (in the counseling department) sold out all of the counselors a couple years ago. School counselors now act as paper pushers and file babysitters instead of actually spending time with kids that need help or guidance.

Advice to Senior ManagementLet school counselors spend time with students instead of making them administer pet projects like RTI and PBS. These programs do have merit but why waste a counselors time babysitting files when somebody making much less could do the same job and clear up the counselors time to actually counsel and guide students.

Stop promoting worthless principals just to hide them from the public. These worthless principals end up pushing worthless agendas.
