School counselors are available at each of our 17 WISD campuses to support our 10,000+ students and their families with their guidance counseling needs. The role of the school counselor is to provide social and emotional support while fostering a safe and caring environment for our WISD students. We strive to empower our WISD students to graduate from high school, to become college and career ready, and to inspire our students to ultimately be successful and responsible citizens.
Texas law (TEC § 33.005) requires school counselors to integrate the following four key components through a comprehensive school guidance program, which are included in The Texas Model for Comprehensive School Counseling Programs which is published by the Texas Counseling Association in accordance with its licensing agreement with the Texas Education Agency.
