Lackland ISD school counselors held an after-school event called “Coffee with the Counselors.” Community members were invited to learn more about the youth programs available, tutoring options, and of course, the vast resources from the department of counseling. This team is comprised of school counselors, the Social-Emotional Support Coordinator and Interventionist, Military Family Life Counselors (MFLC), and the School Liaison Officer (SLO).
With Lackland ISD’s location on the Lackland Air Force Base, it is vital that students and faculty have a strong connection outside of the home, especially in terms of resources for maintaining positive mental health. It is also extremely clear that Lackland ISD has built this strong sense of community into its foundation, showing through in the cracks systems of care and those spending time together outside of school too.
