The Guidance and Counseling Program in Conroe ISD exists to provide support and guidance to all students as a means to foster academic success, post-secondary/career readiness, and personal/social development. The Guidance and Counseling Program in Conroe ISD (PK-12) is focused on helping our students be successful learners, taking ownership of their futures, identifying the pathways to those futures, and take the steps necessary along the way to reach their goals. The program is also designed to assist those students who may experience academic, social or emotional roadblocks. In elementary and intermediate schools, the focus is on building good citizens, developing resiliency, as well as developing those skills necessary to be successful academically. Students take their first look at future careers and begin to hear about post-secondary opportunities. In junior high, planning for the future takes on new urgency. Counselors work with students, not only to plan their academic pathway to graduation, but to investigate careers, majors, and colleges. Naviance, a web-based career/college exploration and planning system, is introduced to students as they begin their search and start their high school academic planning. Social, emotional priorities and brain health are also addressed. In high school, the focus becomes more specific to future plans, academics, and making sure the student not only has the academic prerequisites for future endeavors, but also has a clear pathway on how to reach his/her goals. Once again, Naviance is a powerful tool in helping students and counselors track progress toward attaining academic, career, and post-secondary goals. Counselors support students by helping to reduce any barriers that prevent them from reaching those goals. They also help students find financial opportunities that are available which enable them access to the education they want and need to fulfill their plans. Resilience and mental health are emphasized throughout their educational years.
