Counseling & Behavioral Services
The Counseling and Behavioral Services department supports professional school counselors in providing a comprehensive counseling program supporting students in their educational, career, personal, and social development. The department includes Counseling, Social & Emotional Learning (SEL), Behavioral Health, and Homeless Support.
We're creating a video series designed to help students and parents learn more about Personalized Counseling in Humble ISD. This first video outlines the individualized approach to counseling, and identifies services available to our students. Hear Dr. Fagen and Dr. Leigh explore how Advanced Learning, Career and Technical Education, and the Counseling department have come together under Personalized Student Success to offer each student a unique and personalized approach to planning their customized educational pathway, while focusing on positive mental health.
In Humble ISD, we believe in a personalized approach to counseling. Each elementary student will receive one individual meeting and each secondary student will receive two individual meetings each year with their counselor. In these meetings, students will explore their goals and aspirations, and discuss the options for their personal path in Humble ISD. Additionally, counselors will be working with students and teachers in the classroom to provide additional avenues for student success. This partnership gives Humble ISD students a unique approach to meeting their personal goals, career pathways, and setting them up for success.
School Counseling Program Structure
Counselors in Humble ISD implement the Texas Model for Comprehensive School Counseling Programs. This model delivers counseling services in the following areas:
Individual Planning “to guide a student as the student plans, monitors, and manages the student’s own educational, career, personal, and social development.”
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.”
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."
