The paper discusses a study which is a comparison of teacher perspectives of the role of school guidance counselors before and after implementation of the American School Counseling Association Model (ASCA). Prior to the introduction of this model for counseling, there were no standards available nationally that examined the efficacy of school guidance counseling programs (USDOE, 2001). The U.S. Department of Education however, has worked to devise tools and methods that providers can use to measure the progress of students and support systematic improvement of curriculum and learning in and outside of the classroom.This research proposes that to facilitate exploration of the American School Counseling Association Model, it is necessary to use a qualitative case study to explore the subject.
