    School Psychologist

    Contact: Heather Valentine (hkvalentine@seattleschools.org)

    School Psychologists have specialized training in psychology and education. They understand educational structures, learning style, and elements of successful learning. Through collaboration with parents and staff, school psychologists work to identify students with disabilities and determine their educational programming needs by conducting comprehensive special education evaluations.

    Special Education

    The K-8 general special education program (SM1) at Salmon Bay upholds the standard of least restrictive environment for all students who qualify for special education services. What that means is that we individualize service needs for all students who qualify for special education. This could include full inclusion support in the general ed environment, small mixed groupings with specially designed instruction, resource room intervention support, or any combination of the above. In addition, the middle school also has two SM4 Inclusion programs for more intensive support with a lower student to teacher ratio.
