ITHACA — The Ithaca Public Schools is in the second
year of a three-year contract with a private psychological service to provide
mental health work throughout the district, a move estimated to have saved
$32,000. Prior to contracting for individual student evaluations with List
Psychological Services of Bay City, the school district purchased the services
from its local Intermediate School District. Charles Schnetzler, superintendent
of the Ithaca school district, told MPR that they are happy with the services
the district is now receiving.
