12th - 16th has been designated as School Psychology
Awareness Week. Consistent with trends within the profession, school
psychologists working in Omaha Public Schools perform a variety of duties.
Responsibilities include consultation with principals, teachers, counselors,
and other staff regarding learning, behavioral, or mental health issues that
may be affecting a student’s success in school. School psychologists also work
closely with parents/guardians, community, and social service agencies to
address concerns regarding students. A big thank you to Dr. Word Orsag,
Standing Bear’s school psychologist, for all she does for our students.
