Donegal School district employs 2 full time school psychologists, who help our students succeed academically, socially, and emotionally. They collaborate with administrators, educators, parents, and other professionals to create safe, healthy, and supportive learning environments for all students. One of their main responsibilities is the evaluation and identification of students in need of special education supports and services.
Our school psychologists work with building level teams to identify the best solution for each struggling student and situation. They recommend a variety of strategies to address student needs and to improve school and district-wide support systems. The school psychologists work with students both individually and in groups.
The psychologists are active participants on various teams in each building and assist with the development of 504/Chapter 15 Service Agreements. They participate in regular and special education programs and meetings.
