Register for the 2020 ISCA Virtual Conference Today!
November 20th, 2020
Creating Belonging in a Time of Discord: Thursday, October 29th at 11:30 pm
Register HERE (https://go.panoramaed.com/webinar/creating-belonging-isca-insswa) to learn strategies that foster belonging with students and adults.
In our current context, it is clear that ensuring students (and adults) continue to develop critical social-emotional learning competencies will require the education community to rethink existing approaches to SEL and intentionally focus on cultivating a sense of belonging. In this workshop – hosted by Panorama Education in association with ISCA and INSSWA – we will cover strategies and systems for building belonging both virtually and in-person with students and caring adults.
ISCA Statement on Recent Events
The ISCA Board of Directors condemns violence and institutional racism that marginalizes people of color, especially Black Americans. The recent deaths of Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and George Floyd were disgusting, appalling crimes that affect our communities, educators, and students. The ASCA Ethical Standards not only empower us but require us as school counselors to serve all Indiana students and school counseling students by breaking the cycle of racism through courageous conversations, classroom lessons, and advocacy.
ASCA has recently updated their resources to help school counselors address race and equity with students and advocate for systemic change.
ASCA Anti-Racism Resources (available to all)

Indiana License Plates
The Indiana Department of Education has had a specialty license plate for about twenty years... but not everyone knows how to order one or who benefits from the money raised by the sales of the plates.
Twenty-five percent (25%) of the money goes to the Department of Education to administer the school intervention and career counseling development program which funds grants for hiring new elementary school counselors.
