The school counselor will also support teachers in providing a rich learning environment for all students to enable them to live meaningful and successful lives in society and in the workplace.

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. The Safety Net box is placed in a strategic location that affords 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.
Safety Net forms can be found in classrooms and offices around the school.
Important Information Regarding High School Credit Courses Taken at Jr. High
As you and your student select courses that will earn High School credit, we want to make you aware of some information regarding high school elective credit courses available at WoodCreek Jr. High that will enable you to make the best choices.
All high school credit courses available for junior high students are for academic credit only; none are taught at the PreAP level. Katy ISD's grade point system includes weighted credit for PreAP grades. For example, an "A" earned in a PreAP course is worth 5 grade points, whereas an "A" earned in an academic course is valued at 4 grade points. All courses for high school credit are permanently recorded on the student's transcript.
Regardless of whether the courses are taken in junior high or in high school, there are no weighted grade point options for Algebra I or the first two levels of any Languages other than English, all of which are required for all students.
Please refer to "High School Courses at Grades 7-8" on pages 89-90 of the 2018-2019 course catalog for additional information.
