    School Counseling Program Structure

    Counselors in Humble ISD adhere to The Texas Model for Comprehensive School Counseling Programs in Texas public schools, which is an integral part of the total educational program. Through a systematic and planned program, school counselors apply specialized knowledge and skills to provide developmentally appropriate support and interventions for all students. The Texas Education Code (§33.005) specifies that “a school counselor shall work with the school faculty and staff, students, parents, and the community to plan, implement, and evaluate a developmental guidance and counseling program.” Furthermore, the school counselor shall design the school counseling program to include the following four components:

    Guidance Curriculum “to help students develop their full educational potential, including the student's interests and career objectives;”

    Responsive Services “to intervene on behalf of any student whose immediate personal concerns or problems put the student's continued educational, career, personal, or social development at risk;”

    Individual Planning “to guide a student as the student plans, monitors, and manages the student’s own educational, career, personal, and social development;” and

    System Support “to support the efforts of teachers, staff, parents, and other members of the community in promoting the educational, career, personal, and social development of students.

    School Counseling Program Mission

    The mission of school counselors in Humble ISD is to provide a comprehensive supportive service to address student needs. As advocates for all students, counselors encourage personal growth and enhance student success through a proactive developmental program. Counselors teach guidance lessons to provide an awareness of skills necessary in everyday life and to promote the development and application of these skills. In addition, counselors facilitate small groups to address specific issues or meet with students individually to address immediate concerns.
     
    Consultation with teachers and parents further assists students in becoming more successful in the learning process. The privacy rights of students and their families are protected to the extent possible according to legal and ethical guidelines.
     
    The Humble ISD student support system offers a proactive, collaborative problem-solving team to address individual student academic or behavioral concerns. Please contact the campus counselor to initiate this process.
