Counseling Services

Leander ISD's school counselors help children find success in school by promoting academic, career personal and social, development. LISD's comprehensive counseling program involves parents in decision-making regarding their child's well-being and education.

Counselors and guidance professionals in LISD may collaborate with students, parents, teachers and administrators to identify barriers that may impede student achievement, knowing that every student is unique. They can help students attain positive attitudes towards themselves, their family and their community.
