Catawba County Schools is excited to announce that we are expanding the mental health services that are available for our students. Beginning in the 2017 – 2018 school year, we will contract with Support, Inc. to provide School Based Therapy in all of our schools. Without ever having to leave the school campus, your child can work confidentially with an individual therapist on issues impacting their lives. Support, Inc. can begin the referral process for your child this summer and provide services without delay when school starts back. If your child has previously received school based therapy services from another provider, you can transfer your services to Support, Inc. this summer as well. Please contact Maria Ballard, Director of Student Services, if you would like additional information or if you have any questions.
On Monday, June 5, 2017 Catawba County Schools will begin accepting student transfer applications from parents who wish to transfer their child into or within the Catawba County School System. Approval of a transfer request must be obtained for a student to be permitted to enroll and attend a school other than the one which serves the parent’s domicile. Applications will be accepted beginning at 8:00 a.m. on Monday, June 5, 2016 at the Catawba County Schools Center for Administrative Services located at 2285 North Anderson Avenue in Newton, NC. Applications will not be accepted prior to the June 5th, 2017 date.
