Guidance and Counseling
As we work to navigate through this difficult and uncertain time, Northwest ISD will continue to invest in the social and emotional well-being of our students and staff and will assist NISD parents and guardians in promoting the positive well-being of the family. On this site, you will find helpful videos, tips, activities, and links to websites to help guide and support NISD families through this time. Our goal is to support the holistic well-being of our students during the COVID-19 crisis.
Should you desire one-on-one assistance for your child during this time, please do not hesitate to reach out to your child's school counselor via e-mail. With your permission, your child's campus counselor may provide one-on-one support for your student via phone or an online videoconferencing platform called Zoom. If mental health concerns are critical and need urgent attention, you may dial 911 or access external crisis intervention through local resources. Please remember, we are here to help.
Our vision is to be the best and most sought after guidance and counseling program that supports future ready students.
Our mission is to guide and counsel students to achieve their potential and to live as healthy, responsible, resilient citizens.
Northwest ISD School Counselors support the development of students in many ways as they grow into healthy, productive, and successful community members. Our K - 12 Comprehensive Counseling Program promotes:
- Academic Achievement and Success
- Personal and Social Growth
- Career Awareness
- Career Planning
We work together with parents, students, educators, and community professionals to ensure
success in learning and preparation to take on the challenges of responsible adulthood.
We believe that a premier guidance and counseling program is:
Based upon healthy relationships, both established and taught
A collaboration between students, families, schools, and communities
