Guidance and Counseling

The comprehensive guidance program in the Eanes Independent School District is an integral part of the total educational program. Counselors assist students with developing the skills they need to enhance their personal, social, educational and career development.

The district’s developmental guidance and counseling program meets the priority needs of students through four delivery system components:

  • Guidance Curriculum provides guidance content in a systematic way to all students. Areas addressed include self-confidence, decision-making, goal setting, communication skills, cross-cultural effectiveness and responsible behavior.
  • Responsive Services addresses the immediate concerns of students. Areas addressed include academic concerns, school-related concerns such as absences, school avoidance and misbehavior, relationship concerns, abuse issues, substance use and coping with stress.
  • Individual Planning assists students in monitoring and understanding their own development. Areas addressed include study skills, course selection, career opportunities and training, utilization of test scores, development of healthy concepts and social behaviors.
  • System Support includes program and staff support activities and services. Areas addressed include teacher/administrator consultation, school improvement planning, guidance program development, research, community outreach, public relations and professional development.

These guidance and counseling goals address the identified needs of all students in prekindergarten through grade 12 and are implemented by certified school counselors with the support of teachers, administrators, students and parents.
