School Psychology

Welcome to the Department of Public Instruction's (DPI) School Psychology Services

circle of people

School psychologists apply expertise in mental health, learning, and behavior, to help children and youth succeed academically, socially, behaviorally, and emotionally. We partner with families, teachers, school administrators, and other professionals to create safe, healthy, and supportive learning environments that strengthen connections between home, school, and the community.” (Adapted from National Association of School Psychologists, https://www.nasponline.org/about-school-psychology/who-are-school-psychologists)
