Each year, students meet with their counselors for a variety of reasons including academic, college/career, and personal/social issues. Students are welcome to see me whenever necessary. I am here to help the students of Spur ISD.
By law, most of what students share with their guidance counselor is protected by confidentiality. However, there are a few exceptions to this rule which usually pertains to student or school safety. Below are example of information that is NOT confidential.
1.)  Harm to self
2.)  Harm to others (threats to others' safety)
3.)  Others' harming students (neglect, physical or sexual abuse or assault, etc.)
4.)  Violations on school property (stealing, using or distributiong drugs/weapons, harm to school property/vandalism, etc.)
As a  counselor, my ultimate goal is to provide a safe and welcoming environment for students to share, while at the same time, ensuring both student and school safety.
