Psychologists

  • School psychologists are uniquely qualified members of the school team that support students' ability to learn and teachers' ability to teach. They apply expertise in mental health, learning, and behavior to help children and youth succeed academically, socially, behaviorally, and emotionally. School psychologists partner with families, teachers, school administrators, and other professionals to create safe, healthy and supportive learning environments that strengthen connections between home, school, and the community.

    The primary role of the school psychologist is to:

    • Improve academic achievement by conducting and interpreting psychological, academic and social emotional assessments, while promoting the use of data driven decision.

    • Promote positive behavior and mental health through whole school, small group and individual counseling initiatives.

    • Support diverse learners by assessing students’ needs by providing culturally responsive services to students and families from diverse backgrounds and planning appropriate Individualized Education Programs for students with disabilities.

    • Create safe, positive school climates by consulting with other staff members through school wide committees and engaging in preventative practices.

    • Strengthen Family-School Partnerships by helping families understand their child's learning and mental health needs.

    • Assist staff and families in navigating special education processes and laws.
