You can ask, but a question like that is not conducive to collaborative relationships.

The answer is likely to be, licensed as a school psychologist.

I think there may be a way to look this up online or to find out from state ed, if you’re really in doubt.

Yes. Professionals should be willing to answer your questions about their education, training, and experience. You should check references and review credentials.
