The State of California has mandated that both parents have their educational level reported each year. This is a change from only requesting the highest education level of either parent. This data is used for funding the school.

This information will be used to update the information in Aeries.

Special Education 

Dear TLC Parents: 

I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself, my name is Lilian Zelaya-Coria and I am the new school-based therapist on campus.  I am excited to be part of the Tracy Learning Center Staff and look forward to getting to know our students and providing them with the social and emotional support they need. 

A little about me, I was born in the East Coast and lived in New York, El Salvador, and Sonoma County. I come from a multicultural background as I am of Colombian and Salvadorian descent and speak Spanish.  I received my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and minor in Spanish. I obtained my Masters Degree in Social Work at San Jose State University and became a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW). I have two young children ages two and six who are my biggest treasures.

For the past four years I was working at the Santa Clara County Department of Family and Children Services (DFCS) at the Child Abuse and Neglect Reporting Hotline as a CPS screening social worker conducting assessments of abuse and neglect. Prior to this I provided individual therapy and family therapy at Alum Rock Counseling Center in San Jose, working with at-risk youth who were on informal probation. I also worked with school-aged children through the Restorative Justice Program. I provided mental health services at Kidango with children in pre-school and elementary.  In addition, I worked at the National Hispanic University with the TRiO Educational Talent Search Program gearing middle school students in the pre-college program and taking them to field trips to universities and exposing them to extracurricular events.  

As a School-Based Therapist, my goal is to provide support to students in meeting their social, emotional, and educational needs that impact their learning process. The following services will be offered for the 2023/24 school year such as individual counseling sessions, small group counseling sessions with parent permission for students who may benefit. 

In addition to the referral additional assistance to other programs and services in the community may be offered for those who require a higher level of care. 

This is short-term intervention program consisting of approximately 6 to 8 weeks and will not be long term services.

I am excited to work collaboratively as a team!
