Grunsky School's Vision
Grunsky School is...
a learning organization dedicated to academic achievement, service to our community, and the holistic well being of our students.
that education is the shared responsibility of students, the school, parents, and the community. It is necessary for these groups to cooperate in developing each student's abilities. To the best of our collective abilities we must identify student academic, emotional and psychological needs and we must provide a curriculum and resources to meet those needs.
We, the Grunsky staff dedicate ourselves to this task.
School-Based Therapy Services
The criteria of Valley Community Counseling to provide a school-based therapist on campus requires the site to have a ratio, of 2 to 1 meaning that if a therapist is on campus 4 hours, a caseload of 8 students are needed.
If a site is unable to maintain the above caseload it will be reassessed for the appropriateness of a therapist on that site. If a site has a consistent list of qualified students, an increase in sevices can be provided based on staff availability.
The therapists assess the students and when needed, provide long-term and intense therapy either individually, family, and/or groups.
The therapists all have recieved their Master's Degree and are licensed or registered intern earning hours towar their respective license of Licensed Clinical Social Worker or Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. All interns recieve weekly clinical supervision.Under our blended funding system, therapists can provide services to students on the school campus " bring the clinic to the school ", with parent permission, under the following funding sources:
