This recognition week is sponsored by the American School Counselor Association and highlights the contributions and dedication of school counselors from our nation’s school systems. School counselors play an essential role in developing the whole child for academic, career and personal success.
At the January school board meeting, HPISD Trustees paid tribute to its school counselors through a proclamation. The HP counseling staff is focused on helping our students define their strengths and abilities as they prepare for their educational and career development. They are certified educators with a master’s degree in guidance and counseling. Their training and experience is critical to the planning for students as they set personal goals for their futures.
