Psychologists

  • School Psychologists work to enrich the educational setting through development of a positive social emotional climate that enhances student health, positivity and learning readiness.  Each of the Student Support Services teams in every building includes full-time psychologist(s).  All psychologists are fully credentialed and New York State certified in the practice of school psychology.

School Psychologists assist students in several ways:

    • Provide individual and group counseling for school adjustment concerns
    • Consult with students, families and staff to support students
    • Design, implement and monitor interventions to help students achieve success in the school setting
    • Conduct and interpret psychological and psychoeducational assessments to gain insight into cognitive strengths and weaknesses, learning styles, achievement levels, attentional and organizational needs, and social emotional development.
    • Assume a critical role in crisis intervention services
    • Develop appropriate Individual Education Plans
    • Integral members on the Committees on Special Education, 504, and the Instructional Support Team
