NASP Practice Model

In May 2020, the National Association of School Psychologists (NASP) adopted the NASP 2020 Professional Standards, including the Model for Comprehensive and Integrated School Psychological Services, also known as the NASP Practice Model. The 2020 NASP Practice Model advances the consistent implementation of school psychological services to help ensure their maximum effectiveness, efficiency, and quality in schools nationwide.

KASP endorses the NASP Practice Model and is committed to aligning school psychological practices with the model.  The advancement of the NASP Practice model is a strategic goal area for KASP.
