LAS currently has one counsellor, Diane Pisch, who is available to support students around a variety of needs. She is here three days a week.
School based counselling, in most situations, is short term counselling focused on issues that impact students. School counselling is a confidential service. Referrals may be made by parents, teachers, administrators, or by students themselves.
After three counselling sessions with a student has occured within a school year, the counsellor is required to fill out a Referral for Intervention and submit this to the division office. This referral includes signed parental consent for students 15 and under. Students over 15 may sign their own referral consent, however, it is a common practise within PSSD for counsellors to obtain parental consent when possible for these students as well.
You may reach Diane at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the school directly.
