Message from Board Chair: Jessica Buboltz 

Hello Montana School Counselors,

The MSCA board recently made the difficult decision to cancel our Annual Spring Conference based on CDC recommendations regarding the COVID-19 disease. We value the annual conference as an opportunity to connect with school counselors from across the state, participate in meaningful professional development and prepare for the future. While we will miss seeing you all in person, we still want to offer meaningful professional development during this time. We are working on some opportunities in place of the conference and we will provide more information in the near future. 

This spring has taken an unexpected turn and we find ourselves venturing into new territory every day. We appreciate you all and the work you do for Montana students. We understand that it is a very stressful time for everyone right now. We know that you all work hard to take care of your students and that most of you are scrambling right now to figure out next steps. Please make sure that you take some time to take care of yourselves and keep you and your families healthy.
Check out our COVID-19 page for information and resoures. We will continue to provide reourses and updates as the Montana School Closures continue. Please do not hesitate to reach out during this time. You can find the MSCA Board and Executive Director contact information above in the About MSCA link.
