Internship Program

Each year the School Psychological Services Department trains interns from various universities around the state and nation. The Internship program provides approximately 1500 hours of supervised experience, with interns observing the opening of a school year and participating in the closing of that year. Each supervisor is trained as a clinical educator. Interns are given a diverse opportunity for experiences in multiple settings. In addition to being assigned to one of the four area offices, school psychologists will also have an opportunity to work in the Multicultural Department, Early Childhood Education (Pre-Kindergarten), Severely Emotionally Handicapped Center School and Alternative Education Sites. School Psychologist Interns will have two different supervisors and will rotate their assignment in January. DUE TO BUDGET CONSTRAINTS THERE WILL BE NO PAID INTERNSHIP POSITIONS FOR THE THIS SCHOOL YEAR.
