Subject: School Psychologist Intern Project
Source: Robin Martin, Supervisor, Effective Practices

Intended Audience: Superintendents, Special Education Administrators, Principals

Date: February 26, 2007

The Division of Special Education will offer supplemental funding to districts that employ school psychologist interns in public agencies during the 2007-2008 school year. School psychologists can help improve students' academic performance via development and implementation of academic and behavior interventions. They can also provide research-based pre-referral interventions and document student response to interventions to meet recent revisions in federal special education laws.

The goals of this project are: to assist districts in utilizing school psychologists to support all students, to provide districts with qualified personnel to assist in assessment and data interpretation under NCLB and IDEA, and to provide qualified individuals to assist in developing positive behavior systems. The deadline for applying for the funds is August 31, 2007.
