National School Counseling Week is sponsored annually by the American School Counselor Association (ASCA) to focus public attention on the unique contribution of professional school counselors within U.S. school systems and how students are different as a result of what school counselors do.</span></p><p>This year's theme, <em>Celebrate School Counseling,</em> highlights the contribution of professional school counselors to the academic, career and personal/social success of our children. National School Counseling Week focuses on not only celebrating our counselors, but on informing the public of the tremendous impact school counselors can have in helping students achieve school success and plan for a career. ​</p><p>Katy ISD school counselors are actively engaged in helping students examine their abilities, strengths, interests and talents. Working in a partnership with parents and teachers, they focus on positive ways to enhance students' social/personal, educational and career development.  Counselors are involved with encouraging interpersonal skills, responsible behavior, as well as implementing programs to promote academic success. At the secondary level, counselors begin to focus on career development and post-secondary goals. </p></div>
