The Ludlam Elementary School Student Services Team consists of a full-time guidance counselor, a part-time social worker and a school psychologist. These professionals work closely with students, parents, community agencies and school personnel to ensure that every student is provided the opportunity to maximize his or her social, emotional and intellectual abilities. The Student Services Team help students to feel at ease with teachers and the school environment. Individual and group counseling sessions are conducted to address students’ social and emotional needs. Conflict resolution training is provided to students. Teachers work diligently to prevent bullying and violence in the school and community.

Occasionally, Student Services personnel will conduct home visits to meet with parents/guardians. Student Services Personnel welcome the opportunity to meet with parents, discuss concerns and assist students in any way possible.
