The Dripping Springs ISD Counseling Program strives to be comprehensive in scope, preventative in design, developmental in nature, and an integral part of the total educational program for students to participate in a global society as responsible citizens.
In 2011, the district formed the DSISD Counseling Advisory Team (CAT), which is responsible for overseeing and supporting the district's pre-kindergarten to Grade 12 counseling program.
CAT members include parents, district staff, and district administrators who advocate for the counseling program on each campus. The team meets four times a year to discuss a variety of topics, such as implementation of the American School Counselor Association (ASCA) program model, parenting programs, character education, crisis intervention, communication needs, career awareness, college preparation, and more. Sub-committees on special issues may need to meet more frequently to gather information or prepare presentations for the larger group.
The partnership between home and school is integral to a quality education. Those interested in participating with this committee should complete the Application for Committee Appointment.
