Welcome to the Ford High School Counseling Website! We hope the information we have provided will be helpful to you as you and your student work with the school to have a successful high school career.
FHS Counselors for 2016-2017 are Laurie Blair (students A-K) and Marlo Scott (students L-Z). If you would like to speak with your child's counselor, please call FHS at 903-356-1600. If the counselors are unavailable, your message will be returned as soon as possible. Your student can also fill out our online Counselor Minute Meeting form to help us know how to help your student best. Information is confidential and only seen by the counselor. This is one more tool we can use to help you be as successful as possible! http://goo.gl/forms/gVAVJfI684
Our counselors use the Remind 101 app for getting information to students, from freshman through seniors and all our dual credit participants. Students are provided with a handout with the number and code to enroll in the Remind 101 text app system. Remind 101 is safe, secure, and never shares your student's number with any school staff, including the counseling office. Teachers never see student or parent phone numbers, and students or parents will never see their teacher's phone number. Remind 101 messages are sent via an anonymous phone number issued when you sign up for an account. Your student's personal cell phone number and carrier are in no way connected to messages. Staff members cannot directly communicate with one student. This prevents any form of bullying, favoritism, or inappropriate conversation between teachers and students. Parents are invited to sign up as well.
