Some parents and students may be unsure about the role of the school psychologist in the educational community. In each district, the role of the school psychologist may vary somewhat, but all school psychologists are trained to partner with the school staff and parents to support the learning, mental health, and behavior of students. In addition to observing and evaluating the learning needs of students who may be eligible for special education programs, school psychologists serve on student intervention teams, consult with teachers and parents about student learning and behavior, consult with school administrators about school-wide interventions, and provide individual and group counseling.
The following links give more information about the training, certification, and daily responsibilities of the school psychologist.
