Iola High School students will get a little more help with planning their futures through a new counseling position whose purpose is to advise students on career possibilities, USD 257 board of education members learned Monday night.

The position is also geared to increase graduation rates by helping guide students to a future career path, whether that’s college or a technical training program or straight into the job market. 

The current high school counselor’s various responsibilities make it difficult to focus on things such as career counseling, meeting with parents, developing internships and setting up college visits.
