Guidance and Counseling

Welcome to Rockwall ISD Guidance and Counseling

The Guidance and Counseling Department in Rockwall ISD is 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 program is to provide developmentally appropriate assistance for all students, and at the same time provide special assistance to those who need it.

To fulfill the basic mission of the guidance program in Rockwall ISD schools, program balance is established to guide the allocation of resources to each of the four following components:

  • Guidance Curriculum
  • Responsive Services
  • Individual Planning
  • System Support
