School psychologists are uniquely qualified members of school teams that support students' ability to learn and teachers' ability to teach. They apply expertise in mental health, learning, and behavior, to help children and youth succeed academically, socially, behaviorally, and emotionally. School psychologists partner with families, teachers, school administrators, and other professionals to create safe, healthy, and supportive learning environments that strengthen connections between home, school, and the community.

What Do School Psychologists Do? School psychologists provide consultation with teachers, families, and other school-employed mental health professionals (i.e., school counselors, school social workers) to improve support strategies, work with school administrators to improve school-wide practices and policies, and collaborate with community providers to coordinate needed services.

They help schools successfully:

  • Improve Academic Achievement

  • Promote Positive Behavior and Mental Health

  • Support ALL Learners

  • Create Safe, Positive School Climates

  • Strengthen Family-School Partnerships

What Is the Scope of Practice of a School Psychologist in Bryan County? School Psychologists are trained to work with students ages 3 through 21 often working across multiple schools within the district. School psychologists collaborate with Student Support Teams to plan and refine interventions, analyze progress data, and help determine what additional supports may be necessary for a student to be successful. A primary role is conducting psycho-educational evaluations for the purpose of assisting in determining eligibility for special education services.
