Counseling Services Mission Statement
The mission of the Grand Prairie ISD Counseling Services Department is to provide all students a safe, inclusive, and positive learning environment that focuses on supporting the holistic needs of students and their families.
We aim to:
> Create programs and supports to assist students with removing social, emotional, and economic barriers that are impeding student achievement
> Empower every student to design a comprehensive plan for their future by providing college, career, and military readiness exposure and advisement for grades K through 12
> Teach students essential life skills through social-emotional learning (SEL) lessons, kindness initiatives, and self-accountability campaigns so students will be able to utilize these skills and lead by example in every facet of their lives
Counseling Services is comprised of dedicated school counselors, school social workers, and college access center staff who are ready to serve the students, staff, and families in GPISD.
