HUUSD Requests for Private Counseling

NEW FOR 2019-2020: 

The HUUSD is using Google forms to collect requests for private counseling. PROVIDERS (not parents) complete the forms; however, providers and parents must agree to the terms stated below.

Do not begin a form until you have read ALL INSTRUCTIONS and understand the process. All required documents MUST be uploaded into the form BEFORE clicking submit.

Services WILL NOT begin until the Superintendent has approved the request.


PROVIDER AND PARENT AGREEMENT:

  • These services are not part of a student's educational program. They are privately provided by the parent, and the parent is responsible for all costs associated with their provision.
  • The school district is merely approving the use of space at the school. The parent(s) and provider will abide by the school’s facility use agreement, found at huusd.org. The school will waive all use fees.
  • The school assumes no responsibility or liability for providing these private sessions.
  • The private provider will abide by all rules, regulations, and laws of confidentiality related to the access of all other students and faculty—and the environment as a whole.
  • The private provider will abide by all federal legislation regarding FERPA and HIPAA.
  • It is the parent’s responsibility to manage all scheduling agreements with the provider and the school, including cancellations and rescheduling.
  • The private provider will only use the space provided for the direct 1-1 service he/she is hired by the parent to provide and the adult restrooms. A private provider is prohibited access to other students (even with a student’s permission), faculty, and other classrooms and/or other school environments.
  • The private provider must notify the Superintendent of Schools within 24 hours if at any time the provider:
    • Is charged with a misdemeanor or felony.
    • Has conditions issued on a license.
    • Has a suspended or revoked license.
    • Has been reported to the Department of Children and Families (DCF).
