Attached HERE is the update from the APA council meeting. In addition to alerting you to APA’s new strategic priorities, please note that the first four items in the summary address children. Council did receive the master’s report and that is moving forward. The immediate next steps at APA involve:
- APA’s Board of Educational Affairs – which will be asked to form a task force to look at competencies for practice (jointly with the Board of Professional Affairs) and
- CoA has purview over developing the standards for accreditation.
Cathi Grus from APA will be at the Trainers of School Psychologists (TSP) meeting tomorrow, which will be a good time for Qs. As I said below, APA plans to have an on-going communication and relationship with NASP on issues of accreditation.
