    The Columbia Public Schools in Columbia, Missouri, anticipates full-time openings for school psychology internship positions for the 2023-2024 school year.  Columbia is a city of approximately 127,000 people, situated in between Kansas City and St. Louis.  It is host to the University of Missouri-Columbia, Columbia College, and Stephens College and provides a diverse educational setting and a number of community resources. 

    Our school psychologists are primarily responsible for conducting multidisciplinary evaluations for special education eligibility.  In addition to this role, school psychologists also engage in consultation, conduct functional behavioral assessments, assist with creating behavior improvement plans, lead teams in data-based decision making, and provide guidance when building leaders express interest in multi-tiered systems of support.  On a limited basis, school psychologists also provide individual counseling and lead social skills groups for students with disabilities.  School psychology interns assist their specialist-level supervisors with these duties under direct training and supervision.  Supervision is tailored to individual needs and program requirements; group supervision sessions for all interns are offered monthly.     

    Internship applicants must be working toward a terminal degree in school psychology and are required to seek a Temporary Authorization Certificate (TAC) as a school psychologist in Missouri.  Contact the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education at for more information.  Successful candidates will be offered a salary of $34,500 as well as full medical and dental benefits for the 9-month internship.
