Great News for School Psychologists!

The “Every Student Succeeds Act” (ESSA), a federal law recently passed, will go into effect in September 2017.  This law gives states more power as to how they spend their money; this flexibility offers unprecedented opportunities for schools and practitioners.

What is exciting is that this new law specifically mentions school psychologists as part of “specialized instructional support personnel” as well as, “school-based mental health service providers.” ESSA recognizes the need to provide comprehensive school psychological services to all students.  

ESSA provides a clear pathway for school psychologists to go beyond their responsibilities as members of the Child Study Team and fulfill their roles as providers of comprehensive services throughout the school.

The New Jersey Association of School Psychologists (NJASP) serves and supports school psychologists across the state.  NJASP will work closely with NJDOE in how ESSA is implemented. 

We need your help. We are looking for input and ideas on how ESSA can empower you as a practitioner and improve your school. Please click here for more information ESSA and School Psychology.Final.pdf and an opportunity to provide your input either via email or use the discussion forum.
