    Advocacy

    ESSA Update!

    The first deadline for states to submit their ESSA state plans has passes, and 15 states (including New Jersey) plus the District of Columbia have submitted their plans. It is important for NJ school psychologists to have a "seat at the table" as states and local districts decide how to implement guidelines for school improvement. It is critical that we stay involved to help ensure that ESSA is implemented in the most effective manner. Click here for more!
