2009 NASP Public Policy Institute

July 13-15, 2009
Doubletree Hotel, Bethesda, MD

The NASP Public Policy Institute is an essential training experience for any state interested in pursuing public policy initiatives that impact school psychology. Many states are currently working to achieve NCSP parity, the adoption of national school psychology standards as the entry-level for state credentialing, protect the title “school psychologist” or expand the availability of school mental health services. Many school districts are facing budget cuts and school psychologists are working to prioritize and position their services to protect them from being impacted by difficult financial times. A terrific way for individuals and state associations to build their capacity to engage in effective advocacy is to involve individuals or teams from your state in the 2009 NASP PPI. Through this experience participants and state association leaders will gain critical knowledge and a realistic perspective about how to make policy and legislative goals a reality.
