Our Vision:

School Psychologists support the learning, development, and well-being of ALL students in alignment with the District’s vision.

School Psychologists support general and special education students from preschool through graduation.  We work with students, families, schools and other agencies to provide comprehensive supports including:

  • Evaluating students to assist multidisciplinary teams with determining eligibility for special education services
  • Assisting teachers and support staff in identifying appropriate intervention procedures and evaluating intervention outcomes
  • Facilitating parent, teacher and student understanding of a variety of disabilities and the impact on school, family and community functioning
  • Assessing barriers to learning and helping determine the best instructional strategies to increase student achievement
