School Psychologists


School psychologists are highly trained in both psychology and education with specialized preparation in mental health, child development, school organization, learning theory and behavioral science. School psychologists help youth succeed academically, socially, behaviorally, and emotionally through a range of direct services to children and their families, and through collaboration with educators, parents, and other professionals.

Services may include:

  • Improving Academic Achievement
  • Promoting Positive Behavior and Mental Health
  • Supporting Diverse Learners
  • Creating Safe, Positive School Climates
  • Strengthening Family-School Partnerships
  • Improving School-Wide Assessment and Accountability

The phone numbers listed below are for the offices at Special Services; therefore, it may be best to contact the psychologists at their respective school(s) directly if you have not received a response in a timely manner.
