• TCA was invited to speak to the State Appropriations Committee regarding school counselors’ role in helping students obtain financial aid. More agencies and school boards are asking TCA to speak on the need and legalities of having school counselors. TCA has also been advocating for private practioners and what services they are allowed to provide.
