What is a School Psychologist?

  • School psychologists provide direct support and interventions to students, consult with teachers, families, and other school-employed mental health professionals (i.e., school counselors, school social workers). The goal is to improve support strategies, work with school administrators to improve school-wide practices and policies, and collaborate with community providers to coordinate needed services. They help schools successfully:

    • Improve academic achievement
    • Promote positive behavior and mental health
    • Support diverse learners
    • Create safe and positive school climates
    • Strengthen family-school partnerships
    • Improve school-wide assessment and accountability
    • Monitor individual student progress in academics and behavior
