School counseling district supervisors find themselves at the center of selecting and implementing comprehensive school counseling program models for their school districts. It is important to examine the selection of models to determine if proper services are being extended to students. The purpose of this study was to explore district supervisors' selection of comprehensive school counseling program models. Model selection was assessed by examining district supervisors' ratings of the degree to which their school district's comprehensive school counseling program was associated with traits of the most popular models, and if school district and personal characteristics influenced the selection process. The characteristics listed in the instrument was based on existing literature and frameworks regarding comprehensive school counseling models. Results revealed that components from the three most popular frameworks, The ASCA National Model, the Eight Components of College and Career Readiness Counseling, and the New Vision for School Counselors were reported as being implemented in school districts. District supervisors reported implementing the ASCA National Model most often.
