National School Counseling Week 2020, with the theme “School Counselors: Helping Build Better Humans,” will be celebrated Feb. 3-7, 2020, to focus public attention on the unique contribution of school counselors within U.S. school systems. National School Counseling Week, sponsored by the American School Counselor Association, highlights the tremendous impact school counselors can have in helping students achieve school success and plan for a career. National School Counseling Week is always celebrated the first full week in February.

To help you promote the week, ASCA has developed many materials and resources, including proclamations, certificates of appreciation, sample press releases, posters, stickers, door hangers and bookmarks. Go to for more information.
