The therapy program for educators will cover four virtual therapy visits for Louisiana public school teachers and staff at all K-12 school systems and early child care centers that serve children from birth to age four. This includes all traditional public and public charter schools. Additional visits beyond the initial four covered by the program will be available at a discounted rate. See the announcement. The three-year, million-dollar initiative is funded by the LDOE through allocations from the Governor’s Emergency Education Relief Fund to be responsive to the mental and behavioral health needs educators may be facing in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.
