The UCISD Family & Student Counselors provide support and services for students and their families, creating a true connection between home life, school life, and community life. The FSSC’s are Licensed Professional Counselors, Licensed Professional Counselor-Associates, or Social Workers, licensed by their respective state boards. They offer brief, short-term counseling on a weekly or bi-weekly basis, as determined by exhibited need, during non-academic time.

The Family & Student Counselors are knowledgeable regarding available community resources and can connect families with organizations that may benefit those with specific needs. The FSSC also provides families with information from the district, community agencies, city and state institutions, and any other organizations that might benefit those with specific needs. Family & Student Counselors help students and families reach maximum educational benefits and assist those who are experiencing emotional challenges.
