Join Us in Thanking Our School Psychologists

Goochland County Public Schools join the Virginia Department of Education and the Virginia Academy of School Psychologists (VASP) and the National Association of School Psychologists (NASP) in celebrating School Psychology Awareness Week, November 10-14, 2014.  As schools and school divisions continue to strive to achieve excellence in education by ensuring that every student is ready to learn and every teacher is empowered to teach, the contributions of school psychologists are noteworthy.

School psychologists work with students, teachers, administrators, and families to support the academic achievement, positive behavior, social-emotional wellness, and resiliency of all students, especially those who struggle with barriers to learning.  School psychologists help schools and families address some of our biggest challenges in education: improving and individualizing instruction to close the achievement gap; increasing graduation rates and preventing dropouts; creating safe, supportive school climates; and strengthening home-school partnerships.
