School Psychological Services

School psychological services support families, school, and the community in meeting the academic and mental health needs of students.

 

The school psychologists:

 

  • Consult with parents, teachers, and other professionals to promote student well being and achievement.
     
  • Develop special prevention and intervention programs for students.
     
  • Advocate sound educational practices for all students.
     
  • Provide formal assessments of a child's abilities, learning styles, emotional development, and social skills.
English as Second Language (ESL)

Supports are available for students in grades K-12 who have a language other than English as their primary or home language and who are not yet English language proficient. The program provides assessment, interventions, and monitoring services. It is designed in accordance with mandated state policies and procedures.

Home Instruction Support

Home instruction is a special education service provided for students who cannot attend school due to significant physical or mental health reasons. Services are determined on an individual basis. Home instruction is generally provided in a neutral setting (e.g., public library) or sometimes in the child's home.

 

Home instruction is designed to assist students so that they do not fall behind in classes. It is a temporary service and is not designed to replace classroom instruction.

Child Find

The Greenville City School District is required to locate all children, who may have disabilities, ages birth through 21, who reside within its boundaries. Special education services are available in our schools for any child identified with a disability ages 3 through 21. If you have a child or know of a child you suspect may have a disability under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act or Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, and who reside in Greenville, please call Andrea Townsend, Director of Administrative & Pupil Personnel Services at 548-3185 or contact your building principal.
