The effectiveness of an educational intervention regarding school counselor responsibilities is being evaluated. High school teachers in a suburban, Western New York school were participants in the study. Teachers were presented with information about the role and responsibilities of school counselors over the span of 6 weeks. A pretest and posttest was administered to assess the effectiveness of the educational intervention. The pretest and posttest asked teachers to select from a list of 28 responsibilities they believed a school counselor performs. The findings of the pretest indicated that teachers believe counselors perform 11 out of 14 appropriate activities, and 6 out of 14 inappropriate activities. After the educational intervention was performed, the posttest revealed that teachers believe school counselors perform 11 out of 14 appropriate activities, and 4 out of 14 inappropriate activities.
