Welcome to School Psychological Services

The School Psychological Services Department consists of eleven full- and part-time school psychologists serving all students pre-kindergarten through grade 12 in all schools in Indian River County. School psychologists provide a wide range of comprehensive services which may include (depending on the school):

  • Consultation with teachers, parents, support staff, and administrators
  • Assisting with school-wide implementation of a Multi-Tiered System of Supports framework
  • Assessment of students to guide educational decision-making
  • Design, implementation, and evaluation of academic and behavioral interventions
  • Crisis intervention
  • Individual and group counseling
  • Participation in school improvement activities
  • Collaboration with community-based providers
  • Presentations related to related mental health issues and educational concerns 


School psychologists are professional-technical employees who work an eight-hour day, 10 months a year (196 days). All school psychologists are district-based but assigned to specific schools in addition to district-wide responsibilities. At each school the school psychologist is provided with office space and necessary technological equipment such as computers and access to printers, scoring software, Internet, and network services.

Professional development opportunities are available in areas such as social skills training, crisis intervention, counseling, assessment, Problem Solving/Response to Intervention, bullying prevention, Positive Behavioral Interventions & Supports, and a variety of other Exceptional Student Education topics.

As an integral part of the Student Services and Exceptional Student Education Departments, School Psychological Services collaborates with the other departments to promote overall student well-being. School Psychological Services is managed and supervised by a district-level clinical supervisor with training and experience in school psychology.
