Dr. Jacque L. Jones, School Psychologist




   I have been the district's School Psychologist and the counselor for the

   E.A. Tighe Middle School since 2005. I am also the "Anti-Bullying

   Specialist" for the E.A. Tighe Middle School.


   As the district's school psychologist, I am a member of the Child Study

   Team whose purpose is to identify, evaluate, and develop programs for

   students who have been identified as needing special education and related

   services. In addition to evaluating students, I am also the CST Case

   Manager for students at E.A. Tighe Middle School who have IEPs.


As the counselor for the middle school, I provide individual and group counseling to students, facilitate conflict resolution/mediation with students, and facilitate "Girl Talk" groups for middle school girls ("Girl Talk" will start in November!). I also assist 8th grade students with their transition to high school.


As the Anti-Bullying Specialist at E.A. Tighe Middle School, I conduct all investigations of reported incidents of harassment, intimidation, or bullying (HIB) and consult with the administration and District Anti-Bullying Coordinator on consequences and remediation for those affected.


I am also a member of the Tighe School Intervention and Referral Services Team (I&RS) which assists students and teachers within the general education classroom when students are struggling academically, behaviorally, or social-emotionally.


I am also a Co-Coordinator for the E.A. Tighe Middle School PRIDE Committee (with Mrs. Lisa Drexler, and Mrs. Nancy Palamaro), and a Yearbook Co-Advisor (with Mrs. Palamaro). Mrs. Palamaro and I also started a Knitting Club at E.A. Tighe Middle School last year! Knitting Club will meet  in the Media Center during lunch and recess once per week starting in November.
