The Grand Erie District School Board’s 2,800 employees provide quality education to approximately 26,000 full-time equivalent students who attend our 72 schools. The Board spans a geographic area encompassing the City of Brantford and the Counties of Brant, Haldimand and Norfolk. The head office is located in Brantford. The Board is currently seeking a Psychological Services Leader to join our team.
The Psychological Services Leader will report directly to the Superintendent of Education responsible for Student Support Services. The Lead will be responsible for supervision of Board Professional Student Services Staff including performance management, clinical and organizational supervision, recruitment, and professional development. In addition, there is a requirement for the Lead to personally have responsibility for a number of complex psych-educational assessments and the management of the associated case files. This involves administering assessments to students, creating reports on outcomes and sharing that information with students, parents, guardians and staff. There will be some requirement also to liaise with other external professional partners in the community. The Lead will also provide direction and leadership consistent with the Board’s Strategic Plan, be responsible for a budget, ensure consistency of case management standards (reports and record keeping), and complete other duties as assigned by the Superintendent of Education responsible for Student Support Services.
Candidates must have a master’s degree in psychology and a minimum of five years of experience as a psycho-educational professional providing clinical supervision; comfortable leading a multi-disciplinary team in areas of resolving complex cases, school needs, and problems of practice.
