New Elementary School Counselors to Assist with FCSD Continuum of Student Support

The district Mental Health Committee formed a subcommittee to research and identify ways to expand services to reach all children. As a district, especially in the elementary buildings, we are seeing children with an increase in anxiety and depression, suicidal tendancies, Foster placement, being raised by someone other than their parents, and a lack of social emotional skills. Having counselors in the elementary schools will provide:
  • Individual and small group counseling
  • Crisis intervention
  • Classroom instruction (as needed)
  • Positive behavior support
  • Social emotional support for students and their families
  • Connection for students and families to community resources
  • Mental health referrals
