School-Based Telehealth Arrives at APS

By Atlanta Board of Education Staff

The Atlanta Board of Education (ABOE) and Atlanta Public Schools (APS) reinforced their commitment to whole-child wellness and intervention as the Board approved a contract to provide physical and emotional telehealth services for every student in the district’s traditional schools.

Implementation, which includes engagement with the community, training for staff and delivery of equipment, will begin immediately with the goal of all schools having access to telehealth services by the end of the 2022-2023 school year.

The school-based telehealth (SBTH) service provided by Hazel, a technology company providing telehealth services to school systems, is designed specifically for kindergarten through 12th-grade schools to provide high-quality services and support – at home or from school, using a computer monitor or phone – to address the mental and physical health needs of students through doctor visits and therapy sessions.
