Students are struggling, and no one is paying attention. They are going without help when help should be available and accessible in a school setting. The National Association of School Psychologists recommends that schools employ one school psychologist for every 500-700 students to ensure they are accessible. Many schools are way below this limit. Hilton High School only has one school psychologist and we have nearly 1,500 students. Increasing the number of school psychologists in the building will allow them to be more available to reach out to students and help them with their mental health. We want schools to be a safe place and increase the number of mentally healthy students. We want this to be a requirement for all schools in New York State. Though this is a small step, it is a step in the right direction. Sign this petition to show our Governor that change is needed.
