We are extending an invitation to all school counselors and program staff to join the OSPI Comprehensive Guidance and Counseling (CGCP) Support ListServ.
As information is received that is important for counselors to know in order to do the best job possible in serving students, we are posting that information to the listserv. It is a faster vehicle to get out the information than the CGCP News, which is published every two months (more in depth information may often appear in the News).
Join the CGCP Support ListServ
Articles posted since the inception of the listserv are archived by month. You can also post questions to staff.
The Secondary Education division provides general consultation and technical assistance to the district(s) middle and high schools’ related to secondary education practices.
Our technical support is strengthened by our collaboration with other state groups, including:
Associate Degrees and Issuance of High School Diplomas (PDF)

Student Learning Plans, Grade 8
SLPs must be prepared for all students in 8th grade who were not successful on any or all of the content areas of the Measurement of Student Progress (MSP) exam during the previous year or who may not be on track to graduate due to credit deficiencies or absences.
All public high school students are required to meet statewide graduation requirements in order to earn a diploma. The goal is that more students will be better prepared to meet 21st-century demands in their working and personal lives.
