    School Psychology services are provided on a consistent basis at Randall Consolidated School. A personal and professional priority of mine is to ensure that children are safe and happy while in school. My role as the School Psychologist is to provide a variety of psychological services would include, but are not limited to the following:

    Provide comprehensive evaluations to determine student’s eligibility for special education services

    • Involvement in the school-wide implementation efforts of Response to Intervention (RTI), which include assistance developing individual behavioral intervention plans for students, collecting and analyzing student data from AIMSweb testing, WKCE testing, teacher observations, and other informal classroom data.

    • Provide counseling to children individually and in groups when their social-emotional state has an impact on their functioning at school

    • Provide consultation to teachers regarding children’s behavior and/or academic functioning

    • Provide assistance in with Kindergarten Screening to assess student readiness upon entry into 4K and Kindergarten

    School is a wonderful place where children can learn and grow. Each child has the right to feel safe, successful and respected at Randall. It is my hope that through the many services I provide to students that I contribute to building this warm and accepting environment for all students, where each child feels as though they belong.

    Mental Health Resources

    Childhood and adolescence is a time of change and growth – which occurs in the context of your own particular “family unit” and the community surrounding you.  So basically, we are all on this journey together.  It is important to take good care of ourselves and our families.  We ALL have times of turbulence and stress – none of us are free from that.   But it is extremely important that you have the willingness to ask for and accept help when you feel (or others tell you) things are not going well.  We hope these resources may be of assistance in this goal, of supporting our children and families alike.
