The counseling programs at 17 Pasadena ISD schools have been named “Counselors Reinforcing Excellence in the State of Texas” (CREST) award winners for the 2020-2021 school year.

CREST, which is sponsored by the Texas School Counselor Association (TSCA), recognizes schools that demonstrate the very best in school counseling. Honorees are selected for successfully providing classroom guidance, college and career readiness tools and for supporting students’ social and emotional needs. Through CREST, counselors have the opportunity to highlight their campus programs and show how they support their students and school.

All schools throughout the state are eligible to apply for the CREST award. Schools are evaluated in seven categories: principal’s comments, school counseling advisory council, school climate and safety, student results, major achievements, community partnerships/resources and parent collaboration.

CREST winners are recognized during an awards ceremony during the TSCA conference in February.
