Welcome to WSCA Advocacy
The WSCA Board of Directors believes school counselors are visionary leaders who impact the state and national agenda surrounding education and student success. WCSA works at the state level through Afternoon on the Hill and our partnerships with the Department of Public Instruction.
ONE VISION: ONE VOICE
The Government Relations Committee is committed to providing members with up-to-date information regarding state and federal legislation which affects school counselors in our state. This site allows WSCA members to learn about pending bills, find out who represents them in the Wisconsin legislature and Washington, DC, and gain access to web pages that track legislation.
The committee encourages all members to advocate for Wisconsin’s children and the school counseling profession by actively engaging in the political process.
