The Lewisville Independent School District’s guidance curriculum component provides a means for helping students learn skills that the State Board of Education has identified as priority needs of students. Through the guidance curriculum activities, students develop: self-esteem, motivation to achieve, decision-making skills, goal setting and planning skills, problem solving skills, interpersonal effectiveness, communication skills, cross-cultural effectiveness and responsible behavior. These activities are taught through classroom presentations, small group interactions, and to individuals.
The counselor, as a member of the instructional team, is a vital resource to students, teachers, administrators and parents in helping to build the skills needed to meet the dynamic forces of our society. The Lewisville Comprehensive Guidance Program is an integral part of each school’s total educational program. The basic goal of school guidance is to enhance the student’s educational development.
