Counselors' Role in the Schools

We are excited about the Elementary Counseling Program offered by the Westlake City Schools. The program is designed to benefit our students as they progress though elementary school. The purpose of the program is to address the developmental needs of all students, as well as, provide additional support to students with specific needs.

As school counselors, we accomplish these goals by providing classroom counseling lessons, small group counseling  including newcomers, friendship and changing families groups, and short term  individual counseling support. As elementary counselors, we are members of intervention assistance teams, which meets regularly to problem solve ways to help at risk children.   We are also very involved with the coordination of the Ohio Achievement Assessments.

In order to create a supportive environment to enable student success, we also collaborate with parents and staff. Consulting with you, the parents and guardians, concerning any special issues affecting your child's educational, emotional, and/or social growth and development is one of our primary goals. We encourage you to contact us with any questions and/or concerns.
