Jenifer Price College Counselor
"As questions come up from students and parents or even other administrators, I have a go-to. That makes me look good – that I know where to go to find an answer if I don’t know it.”
Diane Silver High School Counselor
“While there is greater access to information, few of our students and families know HOW to access the information they need. Empowering them to research and using tools like Texas OnCourse helps our students feel more in control.”
