MASP is the only Michigan organization that represents school psychologists at the state and local level and conducts important activities on your behalf. Through professional development, advocacy, governance, and publications the board at MASP works hard to represent school psychologists throughout the state of Michigan.
Save the date for the NASP 2016 Annual Convention, held February 10–13, 2016 in New Orleans, LA! Plan to join thousands of school psychologists enhancing their skills, discovering new strategies, and refueling their excitement for the profession. Described as “relevant” and “eye-opening”, this convention is your chance to break from your routine and reinvigorate your practice. You’ll connect with school psychologists from around the country and come away with valuable knowledge about what works in their districts. Topics include cognitive, academic, and social–emotional assessment; evidence-based academic and behavioral interventions; school psychologists as mental health service providers; support for English language learners; and more. Locate materials to convince your supervisor to approve your attendance, see registration details, and find deals on hotel room rates and more at www.nasponline.org/NASP16.
Office of Professional Preparation (OPPS) announced that school psychologists may use District Provided Professional Preparation Development (DPPD) to renew and advance their professional certificate as of May 14th, 2015. The employing district provides verification that the DPPD meets the criteria for recertification. Learn how to document your DPPD for credit by following the links in this document.
