Research Summary: Shortages in School Psychology

Research suggests that longstanding shortages of school psychologists continue to threaten students’ access to school psychological services. Although NASP recommends a basic ratio of no more than 1,000 students per school psychologist, there is considerable evidence that most school districts do not meet this standard. The ratio of students per school psychologist is estimated to be 1,381 to 1 in the U.S.
