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.
GCPS' school psychologists provide services for students from preschool age through high school. School psychologists use their training in both education and psychology to help teachers and parents develop academic and behavioral interventions for students having difficulty mastering the curriculum. School psychologists maintain regular schedules at each local school, providing a wide array of services including consultation and collaboration, assessment, counseling, crisis intervention, and in-service sessions for school staff.
