A Glimpse of Family Literacy Events at our school...

Welcome to Our Behavioral Services Department...

Blackwater Community School works very closely with Community Resources as well as with outside service providers when it comes to making the BHS services availabel to our students and the family members. Our school do provide Conseling services to all children when needed and authorized by the parents and guardians, however, there are some situations especially when the family of one of student wants to have a specific outside provider to work with their child at school. Most of the time parents and guardians are advised by the Community Health Care services to go with their recommendations.

In order to be in full compliance with Indian Child Welfare and Family Violence Prevention Act at 25 U.S.C. § 3201 et seq., including in compliance with 25 C.F.R. §63.10 et seq., the Crime Control Act of 1990 at 42 U.S.C. §13041 and all amendments and regulations promulgated relative thereto, Blackwater Community School strictly follows the Board approved Policies and Procedures to ensure the comnpliance. We therefore, have certain requirements and guidelines developed for outside service providers to follow them.

Following List of requirements and links may help, if an outside agency is interested to provide BHS services to our Students:

  • A Signed MOU (see sample here)
  • Liability insurance with Blackwater as Certificate holder
  • Copies of Finger Print Clearance Cards (front/back) for all employees that will be working with the children at the school
  • A formal letter on the company’s letterhead ensuring all employees who will be working with children at school have been properly adjudicated as per the Law. We suggest you contact a Consulting Company located in Alberquerque (NM) Personnel Security Company for additional information about their Adjudication services. Their contact info is : (505) 242-0848 (website: http://pscprotectsyou.com/).
  • a Business License from the Tribal administration
