Employment and Internship Opportunities
School psychologists are actively involved in providing consultation and direct services to all children. Salary is very competitive and is based on qualifications and experience. Full-time school psychologist applicants must be eligible for certification as a Nationally Certified School Psychologist (NCSP) and Maryland certification. For additional information about school psychology positions, contact Dr. Cynthia Schulmeyer at Cynthia_Schulmeyer@hcpss.org.
