The Counseling Program at Lyons Upper Elementary School is based on the ASCA National Model: A Framework for School Counseling Programs (used with permission)
A school counseling program recommends counselors spend most of their time in direct service to and contact with students. Therefore, school counselors' duties are focused on the overall delivery of the total program through guidance curriculum, individual student planning and responsive services. A small amount of their time is devoted to indirect services called system support. In addition, the LUES counselor works on attendance and will be contacting parents concerning their child's attendance at school. At certain times during the year there will be mediation meetings to help control excessive absences and tardiness.
