  • NASP Supports Access to an Affirming School Environment and Uncensored Public Education

    The National Association of School Psychologists (NASP) asserts that all students have the right to a safe and affirming educational environment. This includes the freedom to express identities, the availability of robust mental and behavioral health services and social–emotional learning (SEL) programming, and access to a well-rounded, uncensored public education curriculum that includes positive representation of minoritized populations and inclusive sexuality education.

  • NASP Welcomes Robust Investments in President Biden’s FY2023 Budget Proposal

    The National Association of School Psychologists (NASP) is pleased to see that President Biden’s proposed FY2023 budget seeks to build upon federal investments enacted by Congress in the FY2022 appropriations bill. The President’s FY2023 proposal represents a 15% increase in education investments over FY2022 and includes key investments to both improve our mental and behavioral health infrastructure and bolster both Title 1 and IDEA. These investments would advance equity in our schools and communities, begin to remedy disparities in access to comprehensive mental and behavioral health care, and help ensure that every child has access to a robust public education. We join the President in calling on Congress to fully support these investments, including finally meeting their commitment to provide 40% of the additional cost needed to support students with disabilities.

  • NASP Applauds Investments in FY22 Spending Package

    NASP applauds the passage of the FY22 federal Omnibus appropriations legislation, which includes historic investments in education, including the largest increase for Title I in over a decade. This legislation makes remarkable strides toward equitably funding our public school system, providing significant mental and behavioral health supports to children and youth, and ensuring schools provide safe and supportive environments for all students.
