From Feb. 6-10, Leander ISD celebrates National School Counseling Week.

The mission of the Counseling Services Department is to provide a proactive and comprehensive counseling program for all students. Counseling Services partners with educators, parents/guardians and community members to ensure all students in LISD are prepared with the knowledge and skills to contribute at the highest level as productive members of society.

“I want to take this opportunity to thank the 117 school counselors, social workers and licensed professional counselors who are a part of the Leander ISD counseling services department,”  Director of Counseling Services Steve Clark said. “They work to meet not only academic needs of students but their social, emotional and mental health needs as well.”

LISD’s Counseling Services Department is comprised of school-based counselors and school-based social workers and substance abuse prevention counselors. Through the comprehensive counseling program, students develop their academic, career and social skills to “Unlock Their Potential.”
