Position title
Mental Health Professional/Family Care Coordinator
Description

During the past two years, the Sherman County School District and its Board of Directors have focused on establishing an enhanced system of support for all of our students. We currently have expanded to a full-time certified K-12 Counselor/Qualified Mental Health Professional and added Student Success Support (fully funded through state-wide Measure 98 grant funds). We have also added an on-site Family Care Coordinator (fully funded through Mid-Columbia Center for Living). We have experienced recent turn-over in the Family Care Coordinator Position. This has led us to work collaboratively with Greater Oregon Behavioral Health, Inc., Mid-Columbia Center For Living, and local Juvenile Prevention Staff to add an additional full-time Qualified Mental Health Professional that will be hired and supervised by the Sherman County School District. We strongly believe having this additional position, as part of our team, will lead to more efficient coordinated counseling services for our students and families.
