"As a school counselor, I am always looking for books that will help me improve my school counseling program. This one provides a comprehensive view of how to use data in all aspects of the ASCA National Model. This is a must-have for all school counseling programs."

Shuntina Taylor
School Counselor, Wake County Public School System, NC

"I am incredibly excited to utilize the second edition of The Use of Data in School Counseling by Hatch and Hartline with school counselors in training. The book is filled with examples from the field and includes ways that school counselors can use data to advocate for equitable systems and programs for all students. Aligned with the fourth edition of the ASCA National Model, “this is a must-have resource for school counselors who wish to make an impact in their schools.

Jennifer Betters-Bubon
Associate Professor, University of Wisconsin-Whitewater

"Dr. Hatch continues to provide insight and direction to the ever-evolving school counseling profession. With the addition of Dr. Hartline, the second edition of The Use of Data in School Counseling reflects many meaningful conversations about the future of our profession. The additions reflecting updates to the ASCA National Model, use of technology, anti-racist practices, and the impact of COVID-19 make this book a must-read for newcomer and experienced counselors alike.

Stephen Sharp
Co-Author of "50+ Tech Tools for School Counselors" and K-12 School Counseling Coordinator, Hempfield School District, Lancaster, PA

"The second edition of The Use of Data in School Counseling provides a much-needed, solid bridge from research to practice. Each chapter provides both a rationale and an accessible summary of relevant literature. It is easy to share the 'what' of implementation but often more difficult to share the 'how.' Trish Hatch and Julie Hartline do an excellent job of explaining the 'how' portion."

Brittany L. Hott
Associate Professor, University of Oklahoma

"As the school counseling profession evolves to best serve students, so must the school counselor. No matter what stage of the profession you’re in, this text will reach you. Well-respected sources are weaved together to help the reader best understand where we have been as a profession and
how we can apply lessons of the past to best influence the work we do today and in the future. The strategies are detailed and easy to follow and brought to life with real world stories, examples, and opportunities to practice newly learned skills. School counselors who read this text will be able to define, manage, deliver, and assess school counseling programs that help all students grow, overcome barriers, and plan for lifelong success.
"

Franciene Sabens
School Counselor, Elverado High School, Elkville, IL

"The second edition of The Use of Data in School Counseling by Trish Hatch and Julie Hartline is an essential part of the core curriculum for all school counselors. Like any profession, school counselors should constantly advocate for the profession’s value to students, teachers, and school administrators. Hatch and Hartline provide the data to add credibility to the advocacy. As the profession of school counseling evolves to meet the needs of all students, Hatch and Hartline provide the tools to support our community and help us document the efficacy of our work and keep ourselves accountable. The foundational information, tools, and ideas in The Use of Data in School Counseling are an essential part of every school counselor’s library."

Michael Cady Russell

The second edition of The Use of Data in School Counseling is chock-full of valuable information that will be continually referenced for building, maintaining, or improving your school counseling structures and practices. This is a shelf staple for school counselors."

Connie Hanel
Learning Specialist, Independent Learning Systems, LLC and the University at Buffalo

"The second edition of The Use of Data in School Counseling is a must-read for all school counselors and administrators. It is filled with practical examples. The chapter focused on social justice speaks to the importance of school counselors examining achievement and opportunity gaps and developing plans to close these gaps. This is an essential practice for all educators. Looking to meet the needs of ALL students? This book is a great guide to achieving your goal!"

 

Rebecca Pianta
Coordinator of Counseling and Student Support, Capistrano Unified School District, CA

"The second edition of The Use of Data In School Counseling offers guidance that will benefit practicing school counselors trying to revamp their programs, school counselors in training preparing for the field, and school counselor educators in need of concise and comprehensive materials for their courses."

Molly Strear
Associate Professor of School Counseling, San Francisco State University

"As a leader in the school counseling field and an adjunct professor of school counseling, I find this text to be super valuable to both pre-service graduate students just beginning their school counseling journey and veterans who likely never had the opportunity to take a school counseling data class during their training. I use this text with my Introduction to School Counseling students and they comment on how helpful and easy it is to explain what are often challenging topics and concepts. Hatch and Hartline have improved the first edition to make this even more relevant, practical, and useful, if that is even possible, in supporting aspiring school counselors as well as those currently in the field.  Every school counselor should have to read this book before entering the field."

Director of School Counseling, Monsoon Public Schools, MA
