The council allows for discussion and feedback from the field about topics that will lead to the improvement of Kentucky public schools and the opportunity they afford students. 

Membership: The CAC is comprised of approximately 25 practicing counselor leaders who serve in Kentucky public schools and contribute crucial, diverse perspectives on education. The CAC members have counseling expertise in various grade bands that represent Kentucky’s student population. Counselors are selected and appointed to the CAC for 3-year terms.
