Richardson ISD Celebrates School Counselors

National School Counseling Week, sponsored by the American School Counselor Association (ASCA), is being celebrated Feb. 5 – 9. Its goal is to focus attention on the unique contribution of professional school counselors within U.S. school systems and how students are different as a result of what school counselors do.

This special week highlights the tremendous impact school counselors can have in helping students achieve school success and plan for a career. School counselors work with all students to remove barriers to learning by addressing students’ academic concerns, career awareness in post-secondary options and social/emotional skills.

“Honoring school counselors provides recognition for those who implement comprehensive school counseling programs, a vital part of the educational process for all students as they meet the challenges of the 21st century," according to Dr. Courtney Jackson, RISD Director of Guidance and Counseling. “School counselors are integral to student success."

Comprehensive school counseling programs help to increase student achievement and provide a much-needed resource for students, parents, teachers and administrators.

“Richardson ISD is fortunate to have an amazing network of elementary and secondary school counselors,” Jackson said. “They work diligently and give selflessly behind the scenes to help students achieve and thrive. Take a moment this week to thank your school counselor and let them know how much we appreciate their service to kids.”
