School Psychologist

The school psychologists' role is to assist staff in establishing and conducting mainstream intervention activities. Activities may include the following: review of student records, consultation with students, teachers and parents, assisting in development and implementation of positive behavioral intervention strategies including functional behavioral assessments (FBAs). For students birth to 21, the school psychologist participates in evaluation and reevaluation activities to determine a student's special education needs.

Another function of the school psychologist is the availability to assist education staff in systems change, program development and the coordination/communication of Rum River activities. The school psychologist is also available to provide technical assistance to specialized teams (TAT, SAT and SST). This support may include developing individual student plans, goals and evaluation reports
