Corbin School District, an Elementary and Secondary School Counseling grant recipient, used its grant funding to provide mental health counseling at all its schools, especially at the primary, elementary and middle school levels.
Hornell City School District (NY) used Elementary and Secondary Education School Counseling funds to hire three additional mental health providers to support students in Kindergarten through grade 6 in three different schools. With the extra support, these schools have been able to develop Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) teams. These PBIS teams reorganized the systems and structures in place to better support students.
In Virginia, school-based mental health services are provided primarily by school mental health providers: school counselors, school psychologists, and school social workers. Their capacity to offer mental health services depends greatly on the needs of the school division, their responsibilities within the LEA, and ratios of provider-to-student populations.
