On November 8, MCAN was present to witness Gov. Rick Snyder sign HB 4181, which will require school counselors to receive training on career and college advising to help guide the decision-making of high school students.

MCAN is grateful to the Governor and Michigan Legislature for improving career and college advising requirements. We’re confident this legislation will better equip school counselors as they help students explore career choices and offer guidance on postsecondary enrollment options. These requirements will boost the proficiency and skills counselors need to continue making a difference in the lives of students, and help ensure a bright future for Michigan by equipping students with the tools needed to succeed in a knowledge-based economy.

It takes a network of support to guide students through the college-going process and MCAN knows that counselors are an important piece of that puzzle!
