The mission of the Coppell ISD school counseling program is to provide support and guidance to students as a means to foster academic success, post-secondary and career preparation, and personal/social development.  Each CISD campus has at least one full-time counselor on site, with three district support counselors available as needed.  All counselors are fully certified and have a Master’s degree. The CISD comprehensive counseling program consists of four components which include guidance curriculum, responsive services, individual student planning and system support. In accordance with Senate Bill 179, 80% of a counselor’s time will be spent on the comprehensive school counseling program.


A student's right to privacy and confidentiality is the basis for an effective counseling relationship. Confidentiality ensures that school counselors won't share students' disclosures with others except when the student and/or parent/guardian authorizes it or when there is a clear and present danger to the student and/or to other persons. 

Parents and guardians can contact their campus counselor directly for more information regarding counseling services and/or to inquire about specific services for their student.
