Welcome to the ESC Region 11 Counselors page! Where we put the counselor NEEDS first. School counselors play a unique and vital role in the education system, and their work has a significant impact on the students they work with. From elementary school all the way through college, school counselors can positively influence students and help them get the most benefit from their social and educational experiences. The goal of this website is to support you with credible, research-based resources that help you maintain and grow healthy, efficient, and comprehensive guidance programs. All supports will be aligned with the American School Counselor Association and the Texas Model for Comprehensive School Counseling Programs (5th edition).
