Eight Recommendations

Consider how education can be better aligned with MN’s workforce development system
Reference the ASCA National Standards for Students (see handout)
Recommend a grade level benchmark system that districts can use to assist students in moving along their career development
Ensure that students have access to a portable electronic system to catalogue, store, and share their plans and career development activities
Increase the number of school counselors throughout the state
Decrease the amount of “extra” work expected of school counselors that isn’t aligned with their job description
Continue to fund EXPLORE and PLAN tools
Increase experiential learning opportunities for ALL students
