SLJH Course Selection Timeline
Legacy Parent Academy
Starting September, Katy Independent School District will launch an initiative created to equip all parents with tools to provide additional support to their children. It is called Legacy Parent Academy. In it, parents will hear from experts on topics that impact students and schools district-wide such as financial aid for college, mental health resources, and bullying.
"Legacy Parent Academy is a new initiative designed as part of the District's Strategic Plan Goal 8, which focuses on supporting the emotional well-being of all learners," said Director of Counseling Services Christy Maeker. "This is a great opportunity to provide parents with information and strategies to assist their children," added Maeker.
Legacy Parent Academy sessions are supplemental to campus-based programs and initiatives. The topics of each session were selected based on the need expressed by parents and in response to concerns the District sees on campuses and the community. Katy ISD looks forward to working with local media partners to promote and cover these sessions, which can be found on the district's Legacy Parent Academy website. There are a total of 11 Legacy Parent Academy sessions planned for the 2018-19 school year. Five sessions will focus on social-emotional learning topics and six will focus on academic topics.

Katy ISD Safety Net System
The Safety Net is a provision for KISD students or parents to anonymously report or notify school officials of incidents or actions that may pose danger to individuals or the school. The Safety Net begins with the use of a form that is completed and placed in a Safety Net box. Each school has more than one Safety Net box. The Safety Net boxes are placed in strategic locations that afford students to deposit forms without being in the midst of others. The form states the problem and does not have to be signed. School counselors and administrators are responsible for checking the boxes and facilitating follow-up to the tip.

Small group counseling is designed to be preventative and developmental. Being a part of a group is an excellent way for students to learn new skills, develop self-confidence, become more aware of how others see them, practice new behaviors, and better understand how to deal with the many problems life presents. Throughout the year we will be offering groups based on the needs that we see at SLJH. If you believe your student would benefit from participating in a small group or have questions about groups, please contact your student’s counselor via email or phone 281-234-2133.
