The Olympia Conference on the Future of School Psychology was the second conference in a series of two designed to examine issues influencing the field into the 21st century. The conference was an outgrowth of discussions held between Division 16 of the American Psychological Association (APA) and the National Association of School Psychologists (NASP). These discussions were begun in 1976 and resulted in the formulation of a formal agreement designed to promote ongoing collaboration between the two organizations. In 1977 a grant was written at the University of Minnesota to develop the National School Psychology Inservice Training Network (NETWORK). This proposal was developed in a collaborative manner with input from NASP and Division 16. The proposal was funded by the Bureau of Education for the Handicapped in 1979.
