Meet the Counselors

  • School counselors promote and enhance achievement with an annual comprehensive school counseling plan that ensures that every student receives school counseling services. Credentialed school counselors provide comprehensive counseling programs that incorporate prevention and intervention with continuous academic, career, and personal/development activities that will prepare them for meaningful participation in a diverse, changing world. These activities include classroom guidance, small groups for skill mastery, individual counseling for students with specific needs, and a variety of other proactive and innovative ways to support student performance. 

    School counselors implement a program based on the National Standards for School Counseling Programs and the American School Counselor Association (ASCA) National Model. They also provide resources to staff, students, families, and others to ensure that a family-friendly environment is established and ensure that students have access to a safe school climate necessary for academic and social/emotional growth.

    Parents are always welcome to come in or call 754-323-1200 for assistance or advice.

School Social Work

  • School Social Work is a specialized service for helping families and students experience social, emotional, learning, and behavioral difficulties in the school setting.  These difficulties may be presented as poor academic achievement, lack of motivation, difficulty remaining focused on tasks, and truancy.

    School social workers monitor student attendance and truancy cases, provide counseling to students and parents, serve as a liaison between school, family, and the community, serve as a source of information regarding community resources, and make referrals to agencies as needed.  At the high school level, Social Workers work closely with students to ensure regular attendance and meet graduation requirements.

    Referrals to the Social Worker can be made via teachers, staff, parents, or students themselves.  You can contact the Social Worker at McArthur, Sarah Lazarre, LCSW at 754-323-1228.
