Dickinson ISD is committed to following the Texas Model for Comprehensive School Counseling Programs.


The 4 Key Components in this model are:

  1. Guidance Curriculum - our counselors offer guidance lessons directly to students on a variety of topics and arrange for various mental health presentations.
  2. Responsive Services - our counselors offer individual counseling sessions, parent consultations regarding individual student needs and help with coordinating with our district's social workers or outside referral sources.
  3. Individual Planning - beginning in junior high, our counselors offer career guidance, parent and student consultation regarding planning and goal setting, as well as assisting with resources for post-high school education and training opportunities.
  4. System Support - our counselors are committed to providing community outreach opportunities, include parent education programs, teacher consultations and assisting on campus and district improvement committees.
