The School Psychologist is responsible for conducting diagnostic assessments and evaluations to determine special education eligibility and collaborates with all key individuals to determine eligibility and level of service need. The School psychologist provides direct and/or indirect support and interventions to students, consults with teachers, families, and other school-employed professionals to improve support strategies, works with school administrators to improve school-wide practices and policies, and collaborates with community providers to coordinate needed services. Through their work, school psychologists help MAWSECO member districts successfully implement a multi-tiered system of supports (MTSS) framework in order to: improve academic achievement, promote positive behavior and mental health, support diverse learners, create safe, positive school climates, strengthen family-school partnerships, improve school-wide assessment and accountability, and monitor individual student progress in academics and behavior.
MAWSECO is an agency of seven-member school districts (Annandale, Dassel-Cokato, Delano, Howard Lake-Waverly-Winsted, Litchfield, Maple Lake and Rockford) that have joined together to provide services in the area of special education. The mission of the Cooperative is to provide quality special education leadership, services, and support to its seven-member school districts’ staff, students and families as well as other agencies/districts that purchase its services.
