Era ISD employes one full-time counselor for elementary grades (Pre-K through 5th) and one full-time counselor for secondary grades (6th-12th grades.)
Small Group Counseling
Occasionally, students have specific concerns that need to be addressed. Small group counseling allows students faced with similar challenges to identify problems, express themselves in a safe and understanding environment, and learn strategies for continued success! Small group topics are determined and offered on an “as-needed” basis. Some examples of small group topics that may be offered include (but are not limited to): social skills, anger management, conflict resolution, and grief.
Individual Counseling & Planning
Individual counseling and planning has many benefits for students. This service is used primarily to help students face unique challenges. Individual counseling can be used to help students identify their strengths and interests, address behavior concerns, assist with life transitions, or to learn healthy ways to cope with a variety of emotions.
Referrals and Consultation
A key component of our role as school counselors is to consult with parents and teachers. We will work with parents and teachers to review student academic performance, provide support when seeking help, and provide information regarding community/area resources.
