Background: This report is being presented in compliance with Administrative Policy 7.32, Comprehensive School Counseling Program, which requires a report on comprehensive school counseling program activities to improve postsecondary outcomes, must be provided to the Milwaukee Board of School Directors.

During the 2022-23 school year, the comprehensive school counseling program implemented and collaborated with multiple departments and stakeholders on activities and strategies to increase postsecondary outcomes for students in Milwaukee Public Schools. The comprehensive school counseling program is closely aligned with the academic and career planning (ACP) process, which is statewide and now a graduation requirement. The 2022-2023 school year continued to be a year of transition for students, and school counselors worked to provide various levels of support to students to ensure a successful transition. The activities implemented in 2022-23 for improving postsecondary outcomes included the following:

• School counseling curriculum – K5–grade 12
• ACP conferences – grades 5, 7, 9, 11
• ACP school teams and school plans – all schools
• UNCF Empower Me Tour – grade 12
