During 2013-2014, GSCA in partnership with the DOE, developed the Counselor Keys Effectiveness System which is to be used in evaluating school counselors in the state. In 2014-2015, over 60 districts around the state piloted the instrument. GSCA now provides the opportunity for all counselors in the state to utilize the instrument while GSCA and DOE continue to work to make CKES the official state adopted counselor performance evaluation instrument. The Performance Standards & Rubrics are available here. GSCA is aware that ASCA recently issued a 4th edition of CKES. GSCA will be working on a revision to their version of CKES this year.
GSCA looks forward to working with counselors around the state as we implement a statewide counselor performance evaluation instrument that was developed by school counselors and accurately defines the role of the school counselor.
Please email CKES@gaschoolcounselor.org with any questions and to speak to someone regarding the instrument.
