Guidance and Counseling

The mission of the TISD PK-12 counseling department is to provide a comprehensive, developmental guidance program which addresses the academic, college/career, and personal/social development of all students. The guidance program supports an optimum learning environment for each student, measured by their individual academic successes. This is accomplished by ensuring an emotional and social environment that is conducive to establishing and maintaining a quality learning environment that considers the whole child.

We believe…

  • All students have dignity and worth.
  • The primary role of the school counselor is to be an advocate for students and work toward the common goals of equity, access, and the academic success for every student.
  • Counselors build a sense of community within the school, which serves as a platform from which to advocate for every student.
  • Each child is unique and requires professionals to consider their individual unique strengths and weaknesses when considering intervention strategies to support them.
  • The whole child must be considered when designing effective educational programs and/or interventions.
  • Children are affected throughout their education by emotional and social issues that can be addressed through individual, small group, or whole class counseling sessions.
  • Through peer mediation and conflict resolution children can learn to better cope with their peers.
  • Parental involvement in a child’s education is critical and must be nurtured.
  • A quality educational program for a child is a collaborative effort between many people inside and outside the school system.
  • The counselor is a valuable resource and support for students, parents, and educators in helping to provide an optimum educational program for each child.
  • Career awareness and counseling provides a connection for students between their current academic program and their future after school.
  • Decisions affecting the guidance program must be data driven.
