The Mission of Fayette County School Psychological Services Department is to advocate for the optimal learning environment of all students through data based decision-making, consultation and research-based prevention and intervention strategies.
School psychologists help children and youth succeed academically, socially and emotionally. They collaborate with educators, parents, and other professionals to create safe, healthy and supportive learning environments for all students that strengthen connections between home and school.
School psychologists are highly trained in both psychology and education. They must complete a minimum of a post-Master’s degree program that includes a year-long internship and emphasizes preparation in mental health, child development, school organization, learning styles and processes, behavior, motivation and effective teaching.
FCBOE School Psychologists are certified by the state of Georgia (Georgia Professional Standards Commission). Several of our current staff psychologists are also nationally certified by the National School Psychology Certification Board (NSPCB).
