Careers - School Psychology

School psychologists work in elementary and secondary schools or school district offices to resolve student learning and behavior problems. They collaborate with teachers, parents, and other school personnel to improve classroom management strategies or parenting skills, to counter substance abuse, to work with students with disabilities, or gifted and talented students, and to improve teaching and learning strategies. They may evaluate the effectiveness of academic programs, behavior management procedures, and other services provided in the school setting.

School psychologists work primarily in school settings, but are also employed in therapeutic pre-schools, mental health settings, hospitals, and child welfare agencies. Keep in mind that school psychologists must satisfy different competency requirements, depending on their work setting. To work in a school environment, school psychologists must be certified by the Department of Education in the state where they work. But, to work in a community setting, or in independent practice, they must be licensed by the Board of Psychology.
