School Psychological Services

Psychological counseling services are provided to students designated by the Committee on Special Education. Evaluations are conducted to determine special education needs. Attempts are always made to reach early diagnosis and appraisal of each child and direct assistance is given to students and parents, as appropriate, to help with the child’s education.

School support teams, comprised of administrators, teachers, counselors, psychologists and social workers, review student performance and make educational recommendations.

School Social Work Services

The services of the district team of social workers are available in the following areas: child abuse, chronic truancy, family court petitions, home-school liaison and visitation, severe discipline problems, drug abuse, teen pregnancy, maltreatment and educational neglect, medical and physical neglect, child-family counseling, special education services, mandated counseling, alternative family placement and agency referral and liaison.

Social workers coordinate efforts with other school community agencies to provide services to students and their families.
