The Evaluation of Psychological Service in School

Abstract

One of the main school responsibilities remains the provision of the psychological service, recently sanctioned in the new law of Pre-university Education, 2013. The psychologist’s role in the school is seen as a necessary task. This service is provided through the process of handling different problems, the identiication and treatment of children with psycho-social, needs as well as the design and the implementation of precautionary risk programs, according to the needs of school community. Our society is free and open towards the innovation, but at the same time it is very sensitive towards the social, economic, spiritual and individual dificulties. In this process the psychologist should be close to children, teenagers and the problems they are facing. In addition to that, the
psychologist gives an important contribution to the students in successfully facing the curriculum, its goals, objectives and content. The psychologists in close collaboration with teachers enable the students to successfully accomplish their education. The need for designing the guideline “The inspection and self evaluation of psychological service in school” came as a result of the lack of an evaluation system at school, relating to the motivation and the improvement of the psychologist activity. It is the irst time that the psychologists have an appropriate professional tool, which is detailed in measurable indicators and instruments involving all the elements of the psychological service, based on contemporary methodology of inspection and evaluation of educational services. In this context the guideline offers great opportunities that help in achieving the selfevaluation process and the external evaluation of the psychological service in school. This process need time, efforts and professional engagement. Moreover it needs a fruitful combination of school self evaluation in annual basis with the external evaluation carried periodically by the State Education Inspectorate.
