The Guidance and Counseling Program in CISD (K-12) is focused on helping our students: be successful learners; consider their futures; identify the pathways to those futures; and take the steps necessary along the way to be successful. The program also is designed to help those students who may not be in a good place academically, socially or emotionally to be supported so that they may find academic success.   In elementary and intermediate schools, the focus is on building good citizens, as well developing those skills necessary to be successful academically.  This is where students take their first look at future careers, and begin to hear about post-secondary opportunities.  In junior high, planning for the future takes on new urgency.  Counselors work with students, not only to plan their academic pathway to graduation, but to investigate careers, majors, and colleges.  Naviance, a web-based career/college exploration and planning system,  is introduced to students as they begin their search and start their high school academic planning. Social and emotional priorities are also addressed.  In high school, focus becomes more specific to future plans, academics, and making sure the student not only has the academic prerequisites for future endeavors, but also has a clear pathway  on how to reach his/her goals.  Once again, Naviance is a powerful tool in helping students and counselors track progress toward attaining academic, career, and post-secondary goals.  Counselors work with students on any barriers to reaching those goals, and help them find financial opportunities that are available to help them access the education they want and need to fulfill their plans.  In May, once counselors near the end of the year and reflect on what issues/topics have presented particular needs for further staff development

Mission and Goals

The Conroe Independent School District is dedicated to the belief that guidance and counseling will function as an integral part of the total school program, contribute directly to the school mission and involve every member of the school staff.  Developmental in content and process, the guidance and counseling program supports the efforts of teachers and parents in promoting students' self-esteem, academic readiness, social and interpersonal sensitivity, and awareness of future academic and career opportunities.  These are needed for developing economic productivity, responsible citizenship, effective living and enjoyment of life.  Developmental guidance and counseling in CISD is proactive, preventative and characterized by outreach and availability to all students with emphasis on the acquisition of skills.

CISD believes that all students are unique human beings who may need assistance with personal social educational, and career development.  The primary role of the professional counselor is to work directly with parents, students, and staff to facilitate learning and growth and to help provide a safe and encouraging school environment.
