The attached agreement will provide for free grief counseling services within schools.  This agreement will allow the above agency to provide grief counseling services to students on a school campus when counseling at home is not reasonable or accessible.  The wording and provision of this contract is the same that we have had with Wuesthoff Brevard Hospice & Palliative Care since 2004.  All providers under this contract have been fingerprinted and background checked through the Office of District and School Security.

A copy of the agreement is available in the Office of Student Services.
