    Congratulations to Representative Jeni Arndt on the NASP Government and Professional Relations (GPR) Special Friend of Children Award.

    The NASP GPR "Special Friend of Children" Award is given to individuals or groups outside the profession who have nationally supported political action and advocacy on behalf of children to improve education and mental health services for children, youth and their families. These awardees have worked to make systemic changes in policies that govern the provision of education and mental health services at the state and national level. In addition, these individuals or groups have worked to support the NASP mission and its goals. Individual nominees or groups have so distinguished themselves by this service that clear evidence of improvement of education and services for children can be readily documented.

    We are proud of Representative Arndt's advocacy work for the children and school psychologists in Colorado.

    Colorado School Districts:

    Do you want help recruiting for your open school psychologist positions?
    Every year, we send CSSP board members to the National Association of School Psychologists (NASP) Annual Convention.  At the convention, we network with school psychologists from around the nation.  We also will have a booth to advertise school psychologist positions and to recruit out of state candidates.  Our goal is to support our Colorado school districts in recruiting school psychologist to address the shortage of school psychologists in our state. 

    If you/your district is interested in partnering with us and advertise your school psychologist positions, we would be happy to distribute flyers for each of you.   
    if you are interested in having us advertise your positions at the NASP convention,
     email Krista Klabo at kristaklabo@gmail.com with all pertinent info and/or send a pdf of a flyer by February 14th.

    Thanks to the 280+ attendees of our 2019 fall conference! Feedback has been overwhelmingly positive. Attendees attended sessions related to crisis planning, autism identification and intervention, self care, executive functioning, early childhood and much, much more! Our fishbowl raffle was tons of fun and several thousands of dollars were raised to fund student scholarships and early career mini-grants. 

    Save the dates for future fall conferences at the Vail Mountain Marriott:
    Fall 2020: November 11-14, 2020 
    Fall 2021: November 10-13, 2021

    HB19-1036 is officially a law!

    Amazing grassroots advocacy work by CSSP board members Melanie Potyondy and Sacha Mittelman, along with Brittany Vervalin, and Brad Reimers to get this bill passed.

    This bill ensures that National Certified School Psychologists (NCSP) across our beautiful state will receive an annual stipend that recognizes the high level training and professional development needed to maintain this distinction.

    Big thanks to Representative Jeni James Arndt for this amazing opportunity for school psychologists.
