The mission of the Frenship School Counseling Program is to provide support and guidance to all students as a means to foster academic success, post-secondary and career preparation, and personal/social development while empowering students to maximize their opportunity for choice.
What We Do
The Frenship Independent School District Counseling and Guidance Program is comprised of four components and is based on The Texas Model for Comprehensive School Counseling Programs:
- Guidance Curriculum
- Responsive Services
- Individual Planning
- System Support
**For Tele-Counseling Services please contact your specific campus counselor. Tele-counseling is serviced by a licensed counselor in collaboration with Campus Alliance for Telehealth Resources. Participants are identified by the campus counselor.

Nonviolent Crisis Intervention Training: The Nonviolent Crisis Intervention program is a safe, nonharmful behavior management system designed to help provide the best care, welfare, safety and security to those involved in crisis situations. This program focuses on prevention and teaches that physical intervention is to be used only as a last resort, when a student presents an imminent danger to self or others. All physical interventions are designed to be nonharmful and to maintain the student's dignity.
