Certification

School Counselor

The State Board of Education recently adopted the following requirement for the Standard School Counselor Certificate: All school counselors must hold, at a minimum, a 48-hour master's degree in counseling from an accredited institution of higher education that at the time was accredited or otherwise approved by an accrediting organization recognized by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (Texas Administrative Code §239.20 (2018)).

Due to this new requirement, Region 13 will not be accepting additional cohort members.
