The Hello Foundation is a progressive, fun-loving, student-focused company that provides high-quality service to students, districts, and families. Unlike many other companies, we hire all of our school psychologists as employees with benefits.
School districts come to The Hello Foundation searching for specialists who can have a positive influence on their students and staff. We pride ourselves on consistently providing what districts need, where and when they need it. We developed the Hello There hybrid model to give rural districts access to highly qualified providers and to allow our specialists to deliver online services most of the month without losing the benefits that come from being in the building every so often.
We have full- and part-time school psychologist opportunities for both short-term leave coverage and year-long positions.
