Counseling Program

Jarrell ISD's Counseling Services Department is comprised of four school-based counselors, 2 School Mental Health Providers, a college and career coordinator and a coordinator of counseling services.Through a comprehensive counseling program, these staff help students develop their academic, career and social skills to “Unlock Their Potential”.

School counselors work to promote the academic, career and social development of all students. Through Social/Emotional Learning Lessons, school counselors guide children to understand and manage emotions, set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions. The comprehensive developmental guidance and counseling program addresses these strands:

  • Self-knowledge and acceptance
  • Interpersonal and communication skills
  • Responsible behavior
  • Conflict resolution
  • Decision making/problem solving
  • Motivation to achieve
  • Goal setting
  • Career planning

In addition to Tier I support mentioned above, JISD School Counselors serve as the first point of contact for social and emotional concerns.  Once identified, students are provided with one-on-one and small group opportunities via individual visits, restorative circles, lunch bunch and career luncheons.  School counselors also provide academic and career advising, and support in order to ensure readiness for high school graduation, the workforce and post-secondary options.

The Jarrell ISD Counseling Team is comprised of Two Licensed Mental Health Providers who provide short-term therapy services to students. These mental health in school professionals serve students and families who struggle with issues that significantly impact student learning.  They work hard to establish a link between school, home and the community.
