SUBJECT:

Psychologist-In-Training (PIT) Allocation

 

The Psychologist-In-Training (PIT) program is a recruitment program focused on hiring bilingual school psychologists. The program offers a one-year salaried internship for participants. There are twenty-two (22) interns. Each intern has been added to the payroll of the school participating in the PIT Program in the 2017-2018 school year.

 

For the month of September 2017, the interns attend a month-long professional development program. For the remaining months (October through June), interns receive mentoring from a school psychologist. Upon completion of the program, interns agree to work in a school for a minimum of one year.

 

Allocations will be provided via the transfer utility function in Galaxy. Allotments are based on a citywide average PIT salary of $48,529. For FY 2018, allocations will be provided to the schools for the entire school year, rather than prorated for nine months as was the case in previous years. Funds should be scheduled in the allocation category TL SBST PITs Shared. Any questions regarding the PIT program should be referred to Dr. Lorna Rhone, Director, Psychologist-In-Training Program, at (718) 758-7695.
