NISD Counselors are ready to offer support

Northside ISD counselors are available and want to virtually meet with their students from the safety of their homes.

“We know that students may feel uneasy, have questions, or just need a little support at this time of uncertainty,” says Dr. Kimberly Ridgley, Executive Director of Social and Emotional Learning. “Counselors care about the wellbeing of all our students, and we are eager to help. If you need something, say something!”

Fill out the google request form to meet with your counselor. Once the meeting is scheduled, the student will receive a Google Calendar invite and an email showing the date and time to meet with his/her counselor by Google Chat or Google Hangout. Counselors are also available by email.

Appointments are available from 8 a.m. through 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. Be sure to check your google email accounts for appointment confirmations.
