Example Response (Response Needs to be written just like the response below No copying)

RISE Feedback:

REFLECT: I concur with “Action plans should reflect the type of services that are needed and have an idea of the expected outcome of the services” because it is in line with Hatch and Hartline’s intentional school counseling guidelines in regards to determining students needs.

INQUIRE: Can you further explain what “closing-the-gap action plans” are? 

SUGGEST: I encourage you to revisit Hatch and Hartline’s MTMDSS tier interventions in order to add a citation that would illustrate your example on bullying prevention efforts. 

ELEVATE: What if you re-purposed “For example, after a needs assessment, the school is having problems with bullying” as “Following Trish Hatch’s MTMDSS tier based interventions, if the school is having problems with bullying, after a needs assessment, we could… citation…”  for a more weighted argument?

Describe your experiences with prevention or intervention strategies (constructive problem solving)?

In school counseling, it is crucial to have prevention and intervention strategies in place to tackle different student problems. The main goal is to establish a positive and supportive atmosphere by implementing initiatives like anti-bullying programs and campaigns to raise awareness about mental health. By introducing preventive measures like workshops on conflict resolution and study skills, students are equipped with essential life skills that enable them to handle challenges more efficiently. This not only promotes their overall well-being but also enhances their academic success. As a school counselor, I have utilized various intervention strategies to help students facing academic struggles, behavioral issues, or emotional distress during urgent situations that require immediate attention.

D. Describe your experiences with 504 Plans and/or IEPs.

This year I have participated in quite a few 504 plans. Most of them have been at the middle school level and were annual reviews. ADHD has been the reason for about 90% of these 504 plans. I was asking the admins there why they think the number for students with ADHD was so high and their thinking was that most of these students have discipline issues and parents at one point wanted them evaluated for IEP’s but the students did not qualify. Since a 504 is easier to access parents than would ask for a 504. Accommodations don’t really address the behavior issues they are more class academic support with some time to check in with the school counselor for SEL if they become frustrated. I have mixed feelings about how parents are using 504 and IEP’s because it at times can distract and leave staff short spread to provide the services to students who really need the extra support and accommodations.
