Our purpose in assessment/psychological services is to facilitate positive change and enhance learning and emotional well-being through assessment, data-driven decision-making, and collaboration with all stakeholders, enabling students to successfully transition into adulthood. We believe in the unique potential of our students, families, and school communities and therefore hold ourselves to high ethical standards always acting in the best interest of the student.

 

Beliefs

As school assessment specialists we believe our role is to:

  1. Enhance learning opportunities of students through communication regarding strengths and needs

  2. Work collaboratively with all stakeholders to develop effective learning communities within a continuum of services through data-driven decision-making

  3. Review and assess the needs of the student that impact the educational experience, including motivation, cognitive skills, emotional state, cultural background, and family and health factors

  4. Analyze and interpret data for the purpose of assisting staff in developing effective academic programs and positive behavior interventions

  5. Foster positive and cooperative relationships between special education and general education

  6. Assist students to enhance their academic and social/emotional development

  7. Successfully transition students through their academic career and into adulthood
