Researchers from The University of Memphis and the University of South Florida are investigating the impact of the TN State Board Policy 5.103, that established new guidelines for school counselor ratios and mandated that school counselors spend 80% of their time in direct service to students. Our goal is to gather survey data from at least 100 TN school counselors, which we can utilize for on-going advocacy efforts to ensure school counselors are being deployed in schools in roles and functions that maximize their impact upon student success. You will receive a $10 e-gift card for answering all questions on the survey, which we anticipate will take around 10-15 minutes to complete. (Payment limited to the first 150 participants with completed surveys, and we will add a note to the first page of the survey as soon as we see that the maximum amount of money has been allocated.) Please click here for the link to the survey:
After you complete the survey, you will be directed to another link to enter your email and e-gift card selection: Amazon, Starbucks, or Target. Be sure to click on the blue arrow button at the bottom of the page to submit your email and gift card selection.
For a few TSCA members who completed the survey at the TCA conference, there was a glitch in the link to the e-gift card that has now been fixed. If you are one of the school counselors who completed the survey but did not receive the e-gift card link, please email Michelle Brasfield (firstname.lastname@example.org) directly on how to obtain access. The others who were able to enter their selection should have received their e-gift cards Saturday (11/16).
Thank you for your time, and please let us know if you have any questions.
