The District has a team of more than 160 school psychologists who consult with school staff and parents, coordinate responses in times of crisis, and assist in providing services to students with  disabilities. These professionals are available to help parents deal with a number of common childhood issues.

The Family Counseling Program offers free short-term counseling, crisis intervention and consultation. Individual, family, and group counseling services are available. Any family that resides in Broward County and has a school-aged child enrolled in school is eligible to receive services. The program is designed to intervene during elementary/middle/high school years with students considered “at risk” academically, behaviorally and/or socially to prevent future dysfunction such as alcohol and drug abuse, school dropout and delinquency.

Problems addressed include school-related issues, minor substance abuse, mild depression, family communication problems, adjustment reactions to significant family changes, and interpersonal difficulties. Each counseling center maintains a schedule that provides both day and  evening office hours.
