School Psychological Services
WHAT DO SCHOOL PSYCHOLOGISTS DO?
School psychologists provide direct support and interventions to students; consult with teachers, families, and other school-employed mental health professionals (i.e., school counselors, school social workers) to improve support strategies; work with school administrators to improve school-wide practices and policies; and collaborate with community providers to coordinate needed services. Students may be referred for an evaluation by the Pupil Services Team (PST) or Brighton Support Team at BHS. Parents, teachers and outside providers may refer a student to the Committee on Special Education (CSE) to determine if a student has a disability that is negatively impacting their education and are in need of special education services.
For questions about the CSE referral process, please contact the PPS office located in central office. The Student Services director is Deanna Spagnola. 242-5200 ext. 5530.
