To better understand the evolving identity of school counselors, this article examines the value stakeholders place on the roles of elementary school counselors. The School Counselor Role Survey (SCRS) was administered to assess stakeholders' perceptions of the importance of the school counselor roles advocated by The Education Trust and the American School Counselor Association (ASCA). The survey combined the three content areas of the ASCA National Standards and the five domains of The Education Trust's Transforming School Counseling Initiative (TSCI). Results found that all stakeholder groups perceived the most important role of an elementary school counselor is to be that of a mental health professional. (Contains 3 tables.)
