    Employer Name School District Five of Lexington and Richland Counties
    Description of the position: District Five of Lexington and Richland Counties has 3.5 certified school psychologist positions open for the 2022-2023 school year.  

    Our School Psychologists play a primary role in advocacy for all students. Our team of school psychologists  provides a wide range of services to promote mental health, emotional/behavioral functioning, and educational progress for all students with and without disabilities.  We promote a comprehensive services model of school psychology and advocate for low school psychologist to student ratio.  To that end, all of our school psychologists have a one or two-school assignment.  When our newly acquired positions are filled, most of our school psychologists will have a one school assignment. 

    Integral to our role is our consultation and coordination with teachers, parents, administrators, placement chairs, 504 chairs, MTSS leadership, and Student Assistance Team chairpersons. Active membership and leadership on school-based and district committees is common and encouraged.  Our district is currently developing our model of Multi-Tiered Systems of Supports and school psychologists are actively engaged in that process as members of both intervention and leadership teams at the school and district levels.

    As part of a multi-disciplinary team, our psychologists coordinate and implement comprehensive psychoeducational evaluations to determine eligibility of students for special education services and 504 plans and to provide recommendations for instructional programming and social-emotional support and interventions. We have the opportunity to provide counseling services and are ongoing members of threat and suicide assessment teams.  

    The District Five of Lexington and Richland Counties has a strong and supportive school psychologist team that believes in frequent collaboration, encouragement and celebrating and benefiting from each individual’s experience and expertise.  We’d love you to join the team!

    Employer Name Seagrass Psychoeducational Solutions LLC
    Description of the position: Clinical/School Internship or Postdoctoral Opportunity
    This position is offered through a growing outpatient group psychology private practice setting that is committed to patient care, and teaching/training graduate students to be prepared to function independently as licensed psychologists. Training emphasizes both depth and breadth of knowledge in assessment and therapy with a broad variety of patient populations spanning the age spectrum from preschool aged children through adults. Populations served include patients with suspected neurodevelopmental disorders such as Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder, and Autism Spectrum Disorder, as well as learning disorders such as dyslexia and mood and anxiety disorders. Referrals come from pediatricians/primary care physicians, private schools, and other mental health clinicians. The intern or postdoc will have the opportunity to provide evaluation services and therapy to patients in the outpatient setting as well as school-based psychological services including evaluations for special education eligibility and counseling to local charter schools.

    The internship or postdoctoral position is a one-year commitment in which the primary emphasis is on the development of clinical skills and knowledge.  A majority of time is spent engaging in direct patient care, report writing/documentation, and clinical supervision, although administrative duties may also be assigned.  The training approach is an apprenticeship model under which the trainee is supervised closely during the first few months with increasing autonomy as the trainee gains the skills and knowledge to function independently.  Trainees are involved in interviewing and assessing patients, reviewing relevant records, report writing, providing feedback to patients and their families, consulting with referral sources, and using test results to provide recommendations to assist with therapeutic interventions. Trainees will also be involved with developing treatment plans for therapy patients and providing parent training. School-based services will further allow trainees the opportunity to engage in clinical skills in an applied setting with a focus on evaluations for educational disabilities and counseling to assist with improved educational performance. There may be opportunities to provide group therapy as well in the clinical or school-based settings.

    Supervision is provided at least two hours weekly including formal scheduled supervision, although initially is typically more intense and includes daily discussions regarding patients/students assigned to the trainee. Frequent informal supervision as well as feedback regarding interactions with patients and written work will also be given. The emphasis in supervision is placed on effective selection of appropriate tests, integrated conceptualization of test data leading to diagnoses or educational categories, and effective communication of test results in written and verbal formats. For therapy cases, supervision will be focused on case conceptualization, developing an effective treatment plan and teaching and utilizing evidence-based models of therapeutic intervention.  

    Applicants must be trained from a clinical or school psychology doctoral program which includes formal training in psychological assessment of children and adults, including standardized test administration and scoring, interpretation, and report writing. Applicants with practicum/field-experiences providing opportunities to engage in counseling is also highly preferred. Applicants should submit the following:
    1.   A one-page cover letter describing your experience in assessment and therapy along with your interest in the position.
    2.   Curriculum Vitae
    3.   Two de-identified reports
    4.   An official graduate transcript mailed or emailed from your graduate institution
    5.   Three letters of recommendation, with at least one from your training supervisor from your graduate program and one from your supervisor from your most recent practicum/field experience or internship.

    The application deadline is rolling and decisions may be made if the right candidate is found.  The start date is negotiable but expected no later than September 1, 2022.  Please send all materials, if possible, in one PDF format to: dranderson@seagrasspsych.com

    Employer Name Greenwood District 50
    Description of the position: Are you currently looking for a school psychologist position for the 2022-2023 school year?  You should consider applying for a position with us here in Greenwood School District 50!  We currently have an opening for a full-time position but welcome the opportunity to interview those interested in internships or part-time work.  

    Greenwood 50 serves approximately 9,000 students, which provides our team of 10 school psychologists with reasonable caseloads of only 1-2 schools.  School psychologists are tasked with traditional assessment and consultation responsibilities, but are also provided with opportunities for systems-level participation and individual leadership based on interests and skill sets.

    School psychologists have designated offices within their school sites, with access to district meeting/office space and resources at the Special Services building (conveniently relocated next to Grace Street Park).  Working hours are flexible, but are typically from 8:00-4:30 with an hour lunch break, on a 205 day contract.  

    We are on a balanced modified calendar, which means school starts in July.  However, we are afforded the typical school holiday breaks as well as a two week intercession in September/October and March/April.  

    Opportunities for professional development are available and encouraged.  Mentoring is available for interns, early career psychologists, and those needing supervision for LPES certification.  In addition, our team of psychologists meets regularly to provide professional support and guidance to one another, as well as fellowship.  

    Interested applicants can learn more about the position on the district’s webpage.  If you would like to schedule an interview or have any questions about the position, please reach out to the lead psychologist, Ginny Gast, at gastg@gwd50.org.
