Student Support Counseling Team

iLEAD Student Support Counseling TeamStudent Support counselors are the heartbeat of our school sites. During a time when the need for mental health support was unprecedented, counselors were determined to support thousands of families across all iLEAD schools. At the start of the pandemic, Student Support counselors were available day and night through a mental health resource hotline from 8:00 AM to 8:00 PM. This school year, counselors have led six mental health groups, three academic groups and nine social groups for all K-12 learners in need, while also conducting mental health webinars for parents and learners. We’re grateful for this incredible team who were instrumental in weathering the storm of the shutdown.
