Counseling Services

RSISD Counseling Services are an integral part of the total educational program. It provides a systematic, planned approach for helping all students acquire and apply basic life skills and makes optimal use of the special knowledge and skills of school counselors.

  • The foundation of the counseling program is to provide developmentally appropriate assistance for all students, and at the same time provide special assistance to those who need it.

  • Program balance is established to guide the allocation of resources to each of the four following delivery systems:

    • Prevention Education and Life Skills Curriculum

    • Responsive Services

    • Individual Student Planning

    • System Support

    Promoting Educational Success
    Education both enriches our lives and empowers us with the knowledge and skills we need to succeed. Our counselor plays a critical role in maximizing educational opportunities.

    At Richland Springs School, our counselor collaborates with parents, teachers, and others to:

    • prevent and eliminate barriers to learning

    • help equip students with the personal and social skills they need to lead healthy, successful lives

    • assist students in exploring and pursuing academic and career opportunities
