  • Assignment of a counselor is made at the beginning of each school year.
  • Group guidance directed toward meeting the needs of a specific group of individuals is scheduled in addition to individual conferences

Career Development Information:

Students receive information about career development from elementary through secondary school. During the intermediate school year eighth graders are provided an opportunity to take the EXPLORE test which includes an interest questionnaire. Students in grade ten are provided an opportunity to take the PLAN test. This assessment helps students measure their current academic development and explore career/training options. The results of these assessments coupled with consideration of career pathways, the student’s academic record and conferences with the counselor assist the student with initial planning for high school and post high school opportunities.

Educational Guidance:

Each student works closely with his/her guidance counselor to ensure an appropriate course selection for each semester. Guidance counselors also assist students with study skills, time management, and goal setting for both short- and long-term goals. The Texas Education Agency, Division of Communications, has developed a new brochure, Student Guide to Graduation. The brochure is intended for use with parents, students, staff and the community to provide information on The State if Texas Assessnebts if Academic Readiness (STARR) and Texas High School Graduation requirements. The brochure is appropriate for students in grades 7 – 12. The brochure is currently available in English; Spanish version is under development. To access the English brochure, go to:

Personal Guidance:

Counselors are available for consultation with both student and parent/guardian in areas that affect the student’s personal/social domain of life. Click Contact your school Counselor to find campus information.
