KANSAS ASSOCIATION OF SCHOOL PSYCHOLOGISTS
Empowering Children, Educators, and Families
Work Authorized School Psychologist
The shortage of school psychologists has affected schools in every corner of the state. Because of this, KSDE approached KASP to help develop a process to help address the shortage. The result is a respecialization program that allows individuals from related fields, who hold a master's degree and a current license in their field, to complete essential coursework and then work as a school psychologist while finishing their Ed.S. The committee overseeing this process can grant a Work Authorization which is recognized by KSDE. Individuals holding Work Authorization are reimbursable for categorical aid as a professional.
