    The Birdville Independent School District Guidance Counseling Services sponsors an evening counseling program for employees, students and families who have no insurance and who are financially unable to access services in the community.

    This service is offered for our students, employees and families who are in crisis, whether through personal choices, or circumstances beyond their control, including those areas related to school performance such as academics and attendance.

    Campus counselors are the referral contacts for employees and families who are in need of this service. BISD school counselors who are state licensed practitioners facilitate this service. The sessions are held at the Shannon Learning Center on Monday through Thursday evenings from 5:00-9:00 p.m.

    Funding for this program is provided by money from Medicaid and the BISD Wellness Fund. Families pay $10.00 per session.

    For more information, contact Ms. Tate @ 817-547-7080.


  • Digital Disrespect: What is it?
    39% of young people have had rumors spread via text Spreading negative or embarrassing dirt (true, untrue, or unknown, via text, pic or video) about someone behind their back or to their face.

  •  Draw Your Line
    • Unhide. If you wouldn't say it to a person's face, don't say it online or text it.
    • Disengage. If someone's talking about you, don't respond—everything you say just fuels the fire. In this case, silence is golden.
    • Secure your stuff. Find the privacy settings for all the networks you're part of, and use them. They're there for a reason.
    • Save everything. If you're being harassed online, save the messages, posts, comments, etc. so that you can back up requests for blocking or even a protective order (should it come to that).
    • Know your legal rights
    • Use your voice. A site administrator, parent, teacher, or other authority figure you trust can help you deal with nasty stuff happening online — but you have to let them know it's happening.
