Oct. 11, 2019—Cypress-Fairbanks ISD, through the department of psychological services and the guidance and counseling department, received a Bronze recognition award at the Center for School Behavioral Health’s annual conference on Sept. 27.
The Center for School Behavioral Health is a program started by Mental Health America of Greater Houston. The program allows school districts across the greater Houston area to come together and collaborate on ideas and best practices through the Center Collaborative and Learning Community subprograms. CFISD’s department of psychological services and the guidance and counseling department have both been members of the Center Collaborative and Learning Community for more than seven years.
“This recognition reflects the level of dedication and collaborative involvement by the departments of psychological services, guidance and counseling and the Mental Health Intervention Team,” said Dr. Traci Schluter, director of psychological services. “Participation in the collaborative and smaller school-based learning community provides CFISD the opportunity to network and communicate with other districts and agencies in an environment that fosters continuous learning, discussion of best practices and a focus on continuing to improve the prevention, early detection and treatment of behavioral health of students and families within the CFISD community.”
