What does a School Counselor do?

A school counselor works closely with students, parents, teachers, administrators, and community agencies to ensure that each child at Lockley experiences success at school.

A school counselor is available daily to address the various needs of our students. Sometimes a student needs help navigating through a situation. Other times a student may need more assistance and parents will be contacted. The parents and the school counselor will discuss options such as continued visits with the school counselor or referral to various behavioral/mental health agencies.


How can a student visit the school counselor?

A student can be referred to the school counselor several ways:
  • Teacher referral
  • Parent/Guardian referral
  • Administrator referral
Lockley Early Learning Center Intervention Team
The Intervention Team is our student intervention/pre-referral team at Lockley. If parents, teachers or administrators feel that a student is experiencing academic or behavioral difficulties, they can refer a student to the Intervention Team. The Intervention Team does not complete Special Education Evaluations, nor does a referral to the Intervention Team guarantee a Special Education Evaluation.
For more information about our Intervention Team, please click HERE for an informational brochure. 

*A note concerning Confidentiality and the School Counselor*

According to state and local laws (P.L. 93-380) and ethical standards pertaining to confidentiality, the relationship between the counselor and the student, parents or staff member is one of Privileged Communication. Its purpose is to protect the privacy of the child who enters into a counseling relationship with the school counselor. Confidentiality will not be broken unless there is a clear and present danger to the student and/or to other persons.
