Fargo Public Schools (FPS) is committed to our mission: Educating and Empowering All Students to Succeed. While school counseling services are always available in the buildings, additional clinical counseling is available to support the mental wellbeing of students and staff through the Elementary and Secondary Schools Emergency Relief (ESSER) funding. In partnership with Together Counseling, the Connect and Support Program provides counseling services for coping skills, wellness strategies, time management, family conflict, and stress reduction.
The Connect and Support Program is available to any K - 12 student or district employee and offers 30-minute tele-health sessions with a professional counselor before or after school or during an off-period. Sessions are customized to the needs of each client and are intended to be short-term, not exceeding ten sessions annually. The sessions are completely confidential and free of charge to Fargo Public Schools students and employees.
Educating and empowering all students to succeed includes supporting and enhancing the social and emotional wellbeing of Fargo Public Schools students and staff. We are grateful to partner with Together Counseling to provide these services to our school family.
