Virtual School Counseling

Published: 1/20/2021 4:34 PM
While schools are utilizing non-traditional instruction days, the KDE is encouraging school counselors, school social workers and school psychologists to check-in on students and offer virtual chats or telephone sessions for students and families. Video chat and virtual calls are FERPA and/or HIPPA compliant on district-vetted virtual platforms and, thus, adequate for counseling with students once permission has been granted by guardians. The following resources may be helpful during this time:
