At Lemont High School, each student has available to him/her a set of primary support services. Much interaction takes place among these school professionals for the purpose of providing the supports necessary for students to succeed in the school program. Not all students need all of these services, or are even aware of how they function. Other students may require many of these services. However, it is the district’s philosophy that a student goes through his/her high school career with this continuum of services available.
Student Services team members provide additional services to students, assisting them outside of the classroom. Student Services team members include: the Dean’s Office, the Attendance Office, counselors, the Police School Liaison Officer, the school psychologist, social workers, the school nurse, and when needed, members of the special education department.
The following services are provided by Lemont High School:
1. Health services supervised by a qualified school nurse.
2. Educational and psychological testing services, and the services of a psychologist as needed. In all cases, written permission to administer a psychological examination must be obtained from the student’s parent(s)/guardian(s). Results will be given to the parent(s)/guardian(s), with interpretation, as well as the appropriate professional staff.
3. The services of a social worker, provided informed consent from the student’s parent(s)/guardian(s) is secured in advance.
4. Counseling services, which include college and career planning, social-emotional support and other practices that are consistent with the American School Counseling Association model.
