The School Counseling Advisory Council is led by Leigh Bagwell, coordinator of School Counseling for TN. The first meeting of the council is April 7, 2016.

The purpose of the council is to effectively engage stakeholders with leaders at the department, as we work together to increase the capacity of Tennessee school counselors to provide counseling programs that successfully support our students.

Council members will regularly share feedback on local implementation of state school counseling initiatives. Additionally, council members will serve as advocates for comprehensive school counseling in their communities.
