Dear Parent, per section 49428 of the Education Code, charter schools shall notify pupils and parents or guardians of pupils no less than twice during the school year on how to initiate access to available pupil mental health services on campus or in the community, or both.


Redding STEM retains a licensed counselor on a part-time basis. The counselor works with students in a variety of ways. If you feel your child needs to talk with the school counselor, please contact the school director at the number above. He will schedule at time to discuss your concerns and coordinate services.


If you are in need of more significant resources, please contact Shasta County Children’s Mental Health. Their contact information can be found below. A brochure is also attached for your convenience at the bottom of this page.
