ISCA Annual Conferences
Call for Proposals

Submit your proposal here

ISCA is asking for workshop proposals for the 2016 ISCA Spring Conferences. We are looking for sessions that will provide counselors with programs and tools to assist in providing "Student-Centered Data-Informed" practices. Consider contributing to the cause by presenting on a program that is successful in your school. Invite another school or additional staff or administrators to present that also help to serve these needs. Together we can make the role of the school counselor vital to all school districts grades K-12!
