Welcome to the Wisconsin School Psychologists Association Website
Highlights and News from Long Range Planning
We had an exciting and productive Long Range Planning session this June in Madison. It started with a great presentation at DPI by NASP's Stacy Skalski. We then went to the State Capitol to discuss school psychologist roles, state report cards, and more in a legislative briefing. We followed up with individual meetings with legislators, then enjoyed dinner on the Memorial Union Terrace. On Day 2, the gavel was passed from Betty De Boer to WSPA's new President, John Humphries, and the Board completed our summer meeting, approving our annual budget and hearing reports about all of WSPA's initiatives. Especially important was Plan 2020, WSPA's strategic plan that will carry us for the next 5-year cycle beginning next summer. Watch the Sentinel newsletter for more information about WSPA's bright future.
At DPI: the NASP Practice Model and School Psychologist Roles in Multi-Level Systems of Support.
