Abstract

Little research to date has investigated the involvement of school counselors in partnerships with linguistically diverse families. This article reviews the results of a study with school counselors (N = 95) in a Midwestern state on their involvement in school, family, and community partnerships with linguistically diverse families. The results indicated that school principal expectations, school counselor role perceptions about partnerships, time constraints, and training in partnership implementation were positively related to school counselor involvement in SFC partnerships with linguistically diverse families.
