Counselors at Last Night's School Board Meeting

Counseling director Dana Jackson presented Bullying Prevention Interventions and so much more at last night's Board Meeting. Counselors from elementary, middle, and high schools were in attendance to show the Board all the ways they combat bullying and implement social/emotional counseling components. GPISD counselors remove social/emotional barriers to success, guide students from cradle to career, and promote and advocate for their counseling programs. Woohoo!
