Social-Emotional, Character & Guidance Lessons
Teaching & inspiring good character, along with ensuring positive mental health is part of educating the whole child. Character traits such as honesty, responsibility, respect, and self-control are emphasized throughout the school year. Social Emotional Learning lessons may include topics related to feelings, friendship, bullying, conflict resolution, violence prevention/safety, healthy lifestyles, self-control, communication skills, study skills, and decision-making.
Please contact the counselor if you have concerns about your child including:
In addition to parents, school staff may refer a student to a counselor. If a child is in a crisis or is visibly upset, we will do our best for the child to be seen that day by the counselor.
A confidential online “Counseling Request Form” is available as a link on the top right column of the LISD TCE Counselor webpage.
Counseling is provided on a short-term basis varying anywhere from 1-4 sessions. If a student needs additional services, the counselor will share outside counseling agency resources with the parent.
The counselor may see a student one time without parental consent; however, consent is required for services to continue.
All sessions are kept confidential and will not be shared with others. Exceptions are made if the student shares concerns about his/her safety or the safety of others. School staff are required by law to report concerns of abuse or neglect.
Individual screenings/testing & referrals to special programs may be completed upon request.
School counselors offer parents support and connect them to resources as needed.
