Welcome!  My name is Renetta Halverson and I am the School Psychologist for the Belle Plaine High School.  I received my Bachelor's of Science degree from South Dakota State University and my Education Specialist's degree from the University of South Dakota. 


WHAT DO SCHOOL PSYCHOLOGISTS DO?
School psychologists provide direct support and interventions to students; consult with teachers,
families, and other school-employed mental health professionals (i.e., school counselors, school
social workers) to improve support strategies; work with school administrators to improve school-wide
practices and policies; and collaborate with community providers to coordinate needed services.

SCHOOL PSYCHOLOGISTS HELP STUDENTS THRIVE
School psychologists are uniquely qualified members of school teams that support students’ ability to learn and teachers’ ability to teach. They apply expertise in mental health, learning, and behavior to help children and youth succeed academically, socially, behaviorally, and emotionally. School psychologists partner with families, teachers, school administrators, and other professionals to create safe, healthy, and supportive learning environments that strengthen connections between home, school, and the community.
