Needs Assessments, Minute Meetings & PPRA

School for School Counselors Podcast

Aug 8 2022 • 27 mins

If you've been a school counselor for a hot second, you know that the chatter at the beginning of the school year in August and September almost always centers around these two things: needs assessments and minute meetings.

How do I administer a needs assessment?
What questions do I ask?
What do I do with the information once I have it?
What's a minute meeting?

We've got you!

In this episode, we'll break down :
- what needs assessments and minute meetings are and how they're administered
- why you may not need- or want- to do either!
- characteristics of effective and meaningful surveys
- PPRA and how it can really limit the ethical use of needs assessments
