National discussions about school counselors and college access often focus on state-level trends, but new data compiled by NACAC illustrates how that approach can mask significant equity gaps within states.
A new series of maps, which draw on data from the 2015-16 academic year, examines how student-to-counselor ratios differ by school district.
The project is an update and extension of NACAC’s 2018 State-by-State Student-to-Counselor Ratio Report, released in partnership with the American School Counselor Association. That publication tracked counselor caseloads over a 10-year period from 2004-05 to 2014-15.
