Psychological Services

  • SP tree


    The mission of Psychological Services is to become a preeminent department working proactively and cooperatively with schools, families, and the community: to aid in the development of healthy, productive and self-sufficient students; and to promote the delivery of comprehensive and ethical psychological services within the school environment.


    Objective and Responsibility

    The primary objective of Psychological Services is to provide supportive assistance to the instructional program while encouraging positive mental health for the students, faculty, and administration. 


     The department's major areas of responsibility include psycho-educational assessment and consultation with teachers, administrators, and parents.


     Our department maintains close contact with community agencies and professionals who provide services to children and their families. Assistance is offered to parents who need referral to these services.


  • School Psychologist of the Year





    Amy Bell, School Psychologist, was voted as the school psychologist of the year for the 2018-19 school year by her co-workers!

    Amy conducted the most evaluations last school year in the department (92)! She is a dedicated and hard-working employee who is always there for her schools and the children they serve. She contributes a great deal of knowledge and experience to the department, as she is one of the most veteran staff members. 


    Psychological Services is so glad we have Amy on our team!

    Congratulations, Amy Bell!
