Counselor Keys Effectiveness System (CKES) PDF Print E-mail

The Georgia School Counselor Association has developed a newly revised and updated Counselor Keys Effectiveness System (CKES), which is Georgia's only piloted and analyzed school counselor performance evaluation instrument.  If your district is not currently utilizing a school counselor performance evaluation that is based on comprehensive school counseling program model, we strongly encourage you to utilize this instrument as it provides a framework for your school counselors to best impact student performance and school climate.

You can find an electronic version of this instrument at http://gaschoolcounselor.org/?ckes.  The instrument along with all supporting documents and templates for the instrument are available at this site for your use in evaluating your school counselors.  

This instrument was developed by the Georgia School Counselor Association in partnership with the Georgia Department of Education in 2013 and was piloted around the state in April 2014-2015.  

School counselors can be a critical component in enhancing and improving student performance and school climate, and we encourage you to utilize CKES as your district's school counselor performance evaluation.

If you have any questions regarding the instrument or its implementation, please contact This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .
