    Registration is now open for the 2021 CSSP Fall conference! The conference will be held November 11-13 at the Beautiful Vail Marriott in Vail, CO.

    This year’s conference theme, Embracing Change: School Psychology in a Transforming World reminds us of the importance for educational professionals to change as the world around us changes. Change provides us an opportunity to disrupt our current thought processes and way of practicing to reinvent ourselves to better serve our students. We are experiencing a time of unprecedented personal and professional changes due to COVID-19 and our country’s continued struggle for equality and social justice, which present opportunities to learn new and different ways of assessing and providing services to our students. Reconnect with your colleagues while we embrace change together to make this school year one of our most productive ever!

     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.

    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.
