Getting Started in LCPS
Enrolling your student in a new school can be difficult, so we put together some resources in LCPS that help families know who to contact for certain scenarios.
Each school has a designated registrar that enrolls each student in their respective schools. For more information on how to register your student in LCPS, click here.
Academic, Career, and Personal/Social Support
School counselors are certified/licensed educators with the minimum of a Master's degree in School Counseling and are uniquely qualified to address the academic, career, and personal/social needs of all students. By designing, implementing, and evaluating a comprehensive school counseling program, school counselors serve to promote and enhance student success.

School Social Workers are trained mental health professionals with a master’s degree in social work from a university accredited by the Council on Social Work Education, who are licensed by the Virginia Department of Education. We are the link between home, school and the community by providing services to promote and support students’ academic and social success. School Social Workers help parents, students, and school staff identify needs that interfere with learning and work to get the services they need to resolve social, emotional and behavioral problems through comprehensive socio-cultural assessments, collaboration, individual counseling, groups, and Restorative Practices.
