Education for Change is looking for dynamic and visionary School Psychologists who will engage students, families, and other members of our learning community to ensure high student achievement, as well as support mental health and behavior in an effort to ensure children and youth succeed academically, socially, behaviorally, and emotionally. The School Psychologist supports instructional programs by reviewing reports of team members, mentoring colleagues, and supporting professional accountability. They perform specialized psychological work in an educational setting to enable students to achieve optimal learning. They collect, interpret, and synthesize information about students’ sensory-motor/perceptual functioning, academic achievement, intelligence, social/emotional adjustment, and significant crises that influence academic and behavioral functioning. The School Psychologist works cooperatively as an interdisciplinary team member to provide services and to devise an appropriate service plan for referred students and their families. They will know how to successfully work in urban TK-12 schools with a high English Learner and low-income population, including traumatized students.
