School Psychology Mission Statement

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.

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. 

 All children and youth can face problems from time to time related to learning; social relationships; making difficult decisions; or managing emotions. School Psychologists are highly skilled and a ready resource in the effort to ensure all children and youth thrive in school, at home, and in life.
