As part of the center’s counseling services, interns deliver direct care to families under the oversight of a university professor of counseling services, Susan Modisette, assistant superintendent for Student & Family Support said at a meeting Feb. 4.
Fees range from $0-$45 depending on a family’s income. The center began its first semester by offering counseling two evenings a week, but officials quickly recognized the need for further services.
“It was evident almost as soon as they got off the ground that we had a larger need than they had capacity to serve,” Modisette said. “So we were able to add, this semester, a third evening.”
Mediation and conflict resolution services are run by graduate students as well as a full-time attorney and professor. These services cost $100 per party and are free to PISD staff, students or families. 469-752-3098. www.pisd.edu/page/22000
