Message from Betty DeBoer-WSPA President
Welcome to the Wisconsin School Psychologists Association (WSPA) website!
Our Mission Statement:
The primary purpose of this association shall be to serve school psychologists in their efforts to positively impact the educational, social, and emotional needs of children. The association will advocate and support the effective practice and advancement of school psychologist through communication and leadership.
We are celebrating a successful conference in Appleton where participants reported high satisfaction with the majority of the presentations. Our wonderful planning committee is already working on upcoming conferences.
Here are just a few of the exciting things the Wisconsin School Psychologists Association is busy with:
1) Creating a WSPA Certificate in “Risk Assessment, School Safety, Crisis Prevention and Intervention”
2) Investigating the possibility of creating a “Wisconsin Crisis Team” that could assist schools in times of crises
3) Preparing to work closely with the Department of Public Instruction in creating a comprehensive Safe Schools Model for Wisconsin
4) Working with legislators to create effective anti-bullying legislation
