    Welcome to the Chimney Lakes Elementary School Counseling Page!

    CLE’s school counselors are striving to build a comprehensive school-counseling program following the district’s school counseling plan. Some services provided by the school counselors are:

    Direct and Indirect Services to Students

    ·Individual Student Planning: This is done during collaboration and consultation with administrators, teachers, parents, and students through the Response to Intervention process, Individual Education Plan meetings, 504 Plan meetings, and English Language Learners meetings.

    ·Responsive Services: Counseling, consultation, and referral are available to students, teachers, and parents in order to intervene on behalf of those students whose immediate personal concerns or problems put their continued academic or personal/social development at risk. A referral to community services will be given for long term counseling needs.

    ·Delivering School Counseling Core Curriculum: Classroom guidance lessons, small group lessons, school-wide initiatives

    ·System Support: Through consultation, collaboration, and teaming, the emerging needs of the students are identified. Community agencies are identified for future referrals.

    Program Planning and School Support: This includes the planning and management tasks needed to support activities conducted in the school-counseling program. Data analysis is a component in this area used to identify areas that may need to be addressed by the program.
