What do School Psychologists do?
"School psychologists assist students to succeed academically, socially, behaviorally and emotionally. They collaborate with educators, parents and other professionals to create safe, health, and supportive learning environments that strengthen connections between home, school and the community for all students."
As the District School Psychologist I service all the schools.
- My primary role is to evaluate students to assist in providing appropriate interventions for their learning.
- I work closely with the Counselors to provide assistance for students with Mental Health issues.
- I serve on the Response to Intervention Teams at the elementary schools and the Problem Solving team for the high school.
- I am a part of the Autism team that services the entire district providing support to teachers and families.
- I am the chair person for the District Wellness Committee. The Wellness Committee's focus is to promote healthy meals to our students, and provide employees with information for improving their health.
