    We are halfway through the 5th week of staying at home, practicing social distancing, and online education. The BISD Counseling Department continues to work behind the scenes to find resources for our BISD families and provide support to promote physical and emotional well being. 

    Families in need of assistance are encouraged to reach out to anyone on the counseling staff using the Distance Counseling-Counselor Directory  View Directory here.

    This Friday, April 17, marks the end of the 5th six weeks grading period and students will receive a P/F (Pass/Fail) grade for each class on their schedule. Please continue to monitor your child’s progress in Skyward and maintain a structured learning environment if possible.  Adhering to a routine is an important component of mental health as well.

    The BISD Counseling Department understands that our BISD families are struggling with numerous stressors, so below are some additional resources for parents and guardians:
