Kat Pastor of Flagstaff USD in Arizona joins the program to talk about the unique challenges facing her district (in general and during the COVID era), how the district managed the crisis this past spring, and what the district is prioritizing for this coming year. Flagstaff USD has a significant Indigenous American population (specifically from the Hopi and Navajo nations), and Kat discusses how school shut downs presented disproportionate challenges for these students both academically and in terms of access to important resources that the school system provides. We discuss how high school counseling has changed in the past decade plus, promoting equity in college and career readiness, and the importance of using the right data to guide your counseling. Kat’s commitment to her students is both admirable and inspirational. Tune in to listen to the whole interview!
