Welcome to the School Counselor Corps Grant Program


The SCCG team is reaching out across the state to fill one SCCGP Advisory Board vacancy.  If you are interested in serving on the SCCG Advisory Board, please submit a cover letter, letter of recommendation, and resume for consideration for immediate placement. 

The PWR of the SCCGP:

Colorado's SCCG Program is a state funded, competitive, four-year grant that is designed to distribute funds to eligible education providers to:

  • Increase the availability of effective school-based counseling to help increase the state graduation rate and increase the percentage of students who appropriately prepare for, apply to, and continue into postsecondary education; and

  • Support work-based learning awareness, education, and opportunities.

This program is pursuant to C.R.S. 22-91-101 through 22-91-105

Comprehensive School Counseling through SCCG:

  • The SCCG Program focuses efforts on hiring licensed school counselors to develop and implement data-driven programming that supports students':

    • Academic success 

    • Career success

    • Personal/social needs 

  • The SCCG Program facilitates closing the achievement gap and improving attendance, academics, and postsecondary outcomes for students by:

    • Decreasing the student-to-school-counselor ratios

    • Enhancing partnerships

    • Increasing postsecondary preparation programming

  • Colorado's licensed school counselors hold a master's or higher degree in School Counseling.  View details about the Special Services Endorsement in School Counseling.

Annual Report on the SCCG Program

CDE collaborated with University of Denver's Colorado Evaluation and Action Lab to release the 2023 SCCGP Legislative Report (PDF) to describe outcomes of the SCCG Cohort 8 at the close of the four-year grant period. 

Takeways include:

  • Funding from SCCGP moved student-counselor ratios from 860:1 to 276:1 across grantees, allowing counselors to provide more individualized support to students and their schools.
  • The number of licensed school counselors in Cohort 8 schools went from 9.0 FTE before the beginning on the grant cycle to 25.5 FTE in the last year of the grant.
  • In the final year of the original grant term (2021-2022), the dropout rate for the 8 grantee schools serving grades 7-12 (0.9%) remained below the state average (2.2%) but increased by .7% points from the implementation year.
  • SCCG sites attended nearly 2,000 hours of professional development in the final funding year alone, which further developed their knowledge, skills, and ability to meet students’ needs.
