MA Model 2.0

Attention All School Counselors…MA Model 2.0  needs YOUR input!


The MA Model 2.0 writing team has been hard at work updating and refreshing the existing MA Model 1.0 document.  The Foundation, Accountability, Management and Delivery sections have been enhanced to include current references, appealing graphics and helpful examples and templates for counselors to use in their practice.  The DRAFT MA Model 2.0 was shared at the MASCA Spring Conference this past April, and the team reached out to colleagues for feedback.  That feedback was reviewed and edits were made to all sections at a recent writing team meeting.  In order to give all MASCA members a chance to add their voice, the team is extending the deadline to submit additional feedback.  To do so, please go to the MASCA website and download the Microsoft Word version of the MA Model 2.0 document.  Add your suggestions by using the “Track Changes” function, save your changes and email your new document to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..  Changes should be submitted by November 23, 2016.  The team will review the responses and create a final document to be released at the 2017 MASCA Spring Conference.  More information will be shared at local affiliate and MASCA meetings as well as by eblast, the website and social media.  Get involved and stay tuned!!!

A team of young counselor leaders led by Mike Furey from Hampshire Regional HS and Bridget Dullea from Glenbrook Middle School in Longmeadow [under the mentorship of the MA Model 1.0 writing team] have revised the Model. They have worked to make it align with the changes that have occurred in education over the last 10 years, including the state and national emphasis on college and career readiness.

Please read, comment and share MA Model 2.0 with your school counselor colleagues as well as with your administrators.

If you have comments or suggestions, please email them by June 30, 2016 to:
