Coming Soon: The 2009 NASP Public Policy Institute


Skalski, Anastasia Kalamaros, National Association of School Psychologists. Communique


The NASP Public Policy Institute (PPI) will be held July 13-15 in Bethesda, MD and 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, protect the title "school psychologist," or expand the availability of school mental health services.

The primary objective of the PPI is to build capacity, knowledge, and skills related to public policy and grassroots advocacy. Topics reviewed will be key education statutes like NCLB and IDEA, and how states can create local advocacy networks that are effective at influencing public policy. Communication strategies, NASP initiatives, and specific tools for involving profession- als in the advocacy process will be addressed. …
