The Hampden-Wilbraham Regional School District is hiring three school psychologists with the help of a federal grant. Congressman Richard Neal presented the $1.1 million grant at school district offices Thursday afternoon.
"Increasingly, school psychologists play a significant role in the education of students, and with this grant we'll be able to have school psychologists working more directly with administrators and teachers to support student learning," said Hampden-Wilbraham Superintendent Marty O'Shea.
O'Shea says school psychologists are also working more directly with students.
The school district will receive the money over the next three years.
