    Call for Presentation Proposals for the 2021 Fall Conference

    November 11-13, 2021 in Vail, Colorado

    Proposals Due: June 19, 2021

    The Colorado Society of School Psychologists invites proposals for papers and poster presentations for the upcoming annual fall conference November 11-13th at the beautiful Vail Marriott Mountain Resort. Each year the conference draws school psychologists, social workers, counselors, special educators, advocates, directors, administrators, university professors, and others to participate.

    Our theme this year is
    Embracing Change: School Psychology in a Transforming World

    This year's conference theme was inspired by how much change has occurred in our lives and in our profession over the past year (plus). We are continuing to find new ways of enduring Covid-19, social justice and equity issues have risen to the forefront of our collective conscience, and we are learning to develop new and different ways of assessing and providing services to our students who receive special education supports - that's only to name only a few changes we have experienced! With this in mind, please use the form below to submit your paper or poster presentation proposal that aligns with our theme!

    Electronic submissions via Google Forms only! Proposals must be received by June 19, 2021

    PLEASE NOTE: ALL presenters whose submissions are accepted are required to register for the annual conference by September 11, 2021. Rare exceptions may be made for non-school psychologists who are co-presenting (e.g., principal, school counselor) and who will ONLY attend their own session. These requests will be
    con
    sidered by the conference committee on a case-by-case basis.

    Please direct questions regarding paper presentations to: Ron Glazier at rondo2004@msn.com
    Please direct questions regarding poster sessions to: Brittany Greiert at: bsovran@gmail.com

     Standing up for Social and Racial Justice 

    The Colorado Society of School Psychologists stands united with all people, including our students, members, and community, who are affected by hateful, racist and violent acts in our country.  We denounce the violence against Black men and women and we oppose all forms of bigotry, racism and violence.

    CSSP recognizes the significant effect of racial discrimination on the mental health of students of color.  Historical racial trauma, current racial tensions, and the disproportionate impact of COVID-19 in America directly harm Black and other minoritized groups and individuals in Colorado, in addition to the violent acts witnessed in our communities and through media.  CSSP is committed to promoting social justice in our schools and advocating for our communities of color.  We are here to support Colorado school psychologists in meeting these needs, as we must work together to dismantle racial injustice.  

    CSSP has endorsed the School Psychology Anti-Racism Statement and Call to Action.  We encourage members to join us by signing on as individuals here:

    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.

    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.
