    Since 2018, our school-based therapist from Catawba Family Center (CFC) is Ms. Carmen Weldon. She visits RDES on Mondays and alters her schedule when holidays fall on a Monday. Students being served by Ms. Weldon are connected by parent request or school referral. Parent permission and participation is required for CFC services.

    Beginning in August 2019, we have been fortunate to have the presence of a district employed mental health counselor (through the department of Exceptional Student Education).  Ms. Meshia Williams visits RDES on Tuesdays. Parent permission is required for students to receive long-term therapeutic counseling with Ms. Williams. Referrals for mental health services with Ms. Williams are made from Catawba Services (if their services are not a best fit) or by school administration or counselor Spain. On a weekly basis, she is serving: Sullivan, Richmond Drive, Central, Cherry Park, Rosewood, and Northside
