Guidance & Wellness

  • Welcome to the Department of Guidance and Wellness 

    The Georgetown ISD Department of Guidance and Wellness believes that every student should be empowered to lead an accomplished, productive, and healthy life.  Our program was developed with the whole child in mind and provides services necessary to create a healthy learning and working environment.  
    “Whereas education is the primary mission of schools, there is substantial evidence that shows addressing children’s health and mental health needs increases their academic achievement and competence; decreases incidences of problem behaviors, improves their relationships with others, and creates positive change in school and classroom environments” (Elias, 2006; Greenberg et. al., 2004; President's New Freedom Commission, 2003).  Given these benefits, utilizing school counseling and school nursing services can be crucial to ensuring students’ overall success.  
    Jennifer Ashman-Porter serves as the Director of Guidance and Wellness and oversees GISD's professional school counselors, College & Career Advisors, Intervention Services mental health therapists, and professional school nurses.
