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.
