     My name is Cristy Rice and I am the school psychologist for the Camp Hill School District.  I work with students in all of the buildings, Kindergarten through 12th grade.  I also work with many of the Early Intervention students before they come to Kindergarten at CHSD.  I conduct Initial Evaluations and Gifted Evaluations, serve on the SAP Team (Student Assistance Program Team) for the middle and high schools and on the MTSS Teams (Multi-Tiered Systems of Support) for the schools.  I also assist with Reevaluations, Behavior Plans, 504 Plans, the PBIS Teams (Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports) for all of the schools and I am also available to provide Teacher and Parent Consultation on a variety of topics.  At times, I carry out some small group interventions, such as school based Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy.



    I VERY Much enjoy working with ALL of the

    Students, Parents and Teachers in the

    District!  Camp Hill is a Wonderful School District

    set within a Fantastic, CARING

    and Supportive Community!

    Information about Evaluations and Reevaluations

    During the 2021-2022 School Year


    As you may know, the assessments for Initial Evaluations and Reevaluations were delayed two years ago, due to the inability of staff to work directly with students (as directed by Gov. Wolfe's closure of PA Schools in response to the COVID pandemic) and students were only in school last year (initially), three days a week.  At this time, the assessments for evaluations have resumed.  Please keep in mind that Camp Hill School District offers supports to ALL students through our awesome Multi-tiered Systems of Support, or MTSS.  Positive Behavior is also promoted, district wide, through our PRIDE Program (a PBIS or Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports program).  If you feel that your child needs additional supports or you have concerns in general, please contact your child's teacher, school counselor and/or me. 


    If your child is to have a psycho-educational evaluation/reevaluation with assessments, you will be contacted by the school psychologist (Cristy Rice), the student's special education case manager, the Director of Special Education and Student Services (Autumn Reely) or the Administrative Assistant to the Director of Special Ed/Student Services (Alexis Ridolfi).  


    Additional Information: 

    --At this time, the policy of the school district has changed and in-person meetings are now available for Initial Evaluations and Reevaluations.  Zoom meetings are also allowed, as well.  Whether the meeting is conducted via Zoom or in-person has mainly been determined by parent/guardian preference.   

    --Precautions - Some of the precautions available at this time include, but are not limited to: A Plexiglas divider that may be used between the student and examiner, use of a mask by the student and the examiner, all pencils and (when possible) other assessment items will be “one time use”, so that no pencils or etc. are shared between students, and we are carefully cleaning assessment items frequently.
