Okanogan School District is taking a proactive approach to support the mental well-being of their students. The district has recognized the importance of in-person mental health care for students attending Okanogan Alternative Schools and is requesting proposals from independent service providers.
The new program aims to provide on-site mental health services at district facilities while students are present, ensuring accessibility and convenience. By offering these services, the district aims to create a safe and supportive environment for students who may be facing mental health challenges.
To ensure the highest level of care, the district is seeking experienced professionals who will work closely with students. These providers will be subject to all district rules and guidelines, ensuring a seamless integration within the existing educational framework.
Okanogan Outreach, the district’s designated contact, can be reached at 1-509-826-7612 or via email at [email protected] for more information on the contract terms and the detailed scope of services. The anticipated rate for mental health care services is $80 per hour, and providers can expect to work an estimated 10-15 hours per week on a flexible schedule.
