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
Individual Student Planning
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
