National School Psychology Week

We're joining school systems around the country in recognizing Nov. 9-13, 2020 as National School Psychology Week. We celebrate the week’s official theme: "Power of Possibility." The goal of this week is to raise awareness about the role of school psychologists and how they can help empower children to grow in areas such as social skills, empathy, and compassion for others, as well as problem-solving, goal setting, and study skills. As we all deal with the COVID-19 pandemic, we know that it is more important than ever to help students develop resilience to move beyond stressful circumstances.

Our school psychologists are highly trained to provide a range of services to meet the academic, social/emotional, mental and behavioral health needs of our students. These services include direct academic behavioral support and intervention for students, counseling and trauma-informed services, crisis response and strategies to promote school safety, facilitation of coordinated home and school supports, collaboration with administrators to improve school- and system-wide strategies for student success, and collaboration with community service providers to coordinate needed services.

Visit our website to learn more about these and other support resources available for our students and families.
