How did you answer the question about what you wanted to be when you grow up? Is the job that you mentioned what you are actually doing now? According to a 2017 study done by Junior Achievement USA, 91% of teenagers said they know what career they would like to pursue. However, they responded differently when they were asked about which skills they expected to be the most essential in helping them prepare for their dream jobs. To guide students to their desired careers, counseling, advising and student support services are core functions of Texas schools.

 

Counseling

School counseling offers services designed to increase student wellness, improve academic performance, and increase participation in postsecondary education. Counselors support students in academics, career, and social-emotional development through a comprehensive approach involving guidance curriculum, individual planning, responsive services, and system support. This involves classroom lessons, personalized goal planning, and immediate assistance with personal concerns or risks. Students may choose individual or small-group counseling, depending on the situation. The school counseling program is constantly being evaluated to increase efficiency and efficacy.

 

Advising

Effective advising supports students’ decision-making and planning for college and career after high school. The goal is to empower students to make informed decisions about their postsecondary plans and prepare for college and careers. Students collaborate with school advisors to create a clear vision for their academic and career future.

 

Student Support

Student support includes non-academic interventions and activities to overcome barriers to learning. As factors within and outside of the classroom can impact educational success, it’s crucial to meet personal, social, and emotional needs to maximize the effectiveness of academic instruction. These supports include supporting students to feel physically and psychologically safe.

 

Texas schools actively collaborate with educators and service networks in the district and community to meet individual student needs. This collective effort empowers students to set ambitious goals, chart a path to achievement, and navigate personal and academic challenges successfully.
