School Based Health Centers (SBHC)

After a yearlong process of reviewing student behavioral data, SAP referrals, and family support services provided by ASD, we are pleased to announce the finalization of the ASD Site Based Mental/Behavioral Program! This dynamic partnership between Magellan Healthcare and ASD will provide behavioral and mental health supports in 7 new schools, including Washington, Roosevelt, Central and Ramos Elementary Schools, and serve middle school students at Harrison Morton and South Mountain.

This work was collaborative and included representatives from our families and the community on the review committee. The mental/behavioral health partners were chosen based on:

Bilingual staff
Family support and counseling 
Sliding fee scales
All insurances
Year-round services
Crisis Supports

The district anticipates that these new centers will be operational and open to students at the end of March.
