    Counselors guide students toward success by serving as a strong connection for the many resources within the school district and the numerous community resources available in the Northeast Tarrant County area. As members of the BISD educational team counselors are dedicated to helping all students achieve their destination of graduation.

    The Destination Graduation Journey begins in pre-kindergarten and continues through twelfth grade. Counselors serve as valuable guides throughout this journey and provide direction along the path in the areas of:

    • Academic success
