    School psychologists can answer questions about students who are struggling academically, behaviorally, or socially. School psychologists provide evaluations for students in consideration of special education services. They can also assist families in seeking community resources for psychological needs.

    Ellen McClay – School Counselor E-mail: emcclay@wcpss.net; office: 919-557-2594
    Counselors provide individual and small group counseling and classroom guidance. Counselors consult with parents and staff about academic, behavior, and emotional concerns. If your family is experiencing anything out of the ordinary, please let me know.  If I am aware of any special problems your child might be facing, I can observe your child and help both your child and you with difficulties that might surface.  I can also provide families lists of tutors in the area.
