Greetings! My name is Mr. Onate and I'm a school psychologist.
What does a school psychologist do you may ask, well according to The National Association of School Psychologists (NASP), " School psychologists apply expertise in mental health, learning, and behavior to help children and youth succeed academically, socially, behaviorally, and emotionally. They provide assessment, support, and intervention services to students; partner with families, teachers, and other professionals to create safe, healthy, and supportive learning environments; work with school administrators to improve school-wide policies; and collaborate with community providers to coordinate services for students."
For any questions or concerns, you may have as a student, parent, or guardian; please visit the CVUSD Special Education Department webpage. The site can answer common questions you may have about special education during this unique period of time.
For more specific questions or concerns, here are two ways you can reach me:

I'm best reached by email as at times I may be off-campus or away from my office. Please allow 24 hours for a response on school days. I'm typically on the Chino High School campus Monday, Wednesday, and Friday during school hours (7:30 am to 4:00 pm).
