School Counselors

The Bullard ISD Comprehensive Guidance Program is designed to align with the Texas Model for Comprehensive School Counseling Programs and our local Bullard ISD Mission and Vision. 

The role of BISD counselors is to promote student growth academically, socially, and emotionally. Counselors collaborate with students, parents, teachers, administrators, and members so the community. 

Your school counselors are here to help!
