Preparing Texas Students for a Successful Future

Counseling, advising, and student support services are core functions of Texas schools.  Collectively, these functions enable students to realize their potential by preparing them to set ambitious goals, define a pathway to achievement, and successfully navigate personal and academic obstacles they encounter along the way.  

The Counseling, Advising, and Student Supports (CASS) team offers resources, guidance, and technical assistance to educators to drive continuous improvement of these critical school and community-based programs.
