Social Work and Psychology

Social Worker

The school social worker meets with students individually, in pairs, or with groups when academic performance is impacted by social/emotional needs. The social worker is also available to parents for consultation regarding their child. The social worker helps students to solve problems that may be affecting their school performance. Students may refer themselves to the social worker or may be referred by a teacher, the principal or their parents.

Psychologist

The school psychologist provides assessment to help determine learning strengths and needs of students. In addition, the school psychologist collaborates with staff and parents to problem-solve concerns. The psychologist also provides individual and group counseling for students.
