I wanted to share a story that aired on WCCO News about two bills I’ve authored to improve the ability of Minnesota school districts to adequately meet their need to hire school counselors.
School counselors are an important resource for students, teachers, and families, and extensive research has shown that their presence helps diffuse stressful student relationships, improve student achievement, and increase college placement and acceptance rates.

I encourage you to contact me on any legislative or state government issue that may arise. During the legislative session, my office in St. Paul can be reached by email at Rep.Jerry.Newton@house.mn or by phone at 651-296-5369.
