Despite the recent decision to roll back DACA protections, the California Association of School Psychologists (CASP) stands firmly by the Dreamers in this matter. The Dreamers attend the same schools that school psychologists serve and thus relationships and connections have been made. This decision to end DACA has created fear, chaos, and undue anxieties for hardworking, law abiding, hardworking individuals that will only make America better. The Dreamers are Americans in the way they think, the music they listen to, the flag they pledge allegiance to, and the laws they abide by except on paper. By denying the Dreamers the opportunity for citizenship, America stands to lose its opportunity to remain a global leader. CASP asks Congress to make the humane decision and create a path for citizenship for our Dreamers.
For updates on the status of DACA and related documents see the Legislative Page.
CASP has produced a hybrid Resource/Position paper that looks at the status of the federal administration’s travel ban and how it is affecting our students, and lists statewide and regional agencies contact information that school psychologists may wish to share with impacted students and families. If you know of other resources please share them by contacting CASP at firstname.lastname@example.org. Access this paper now or from the publications page.
“Equity” takes the stage as CASP presents its 68th Annual Convention, October 5-7 in Garden Grove. Keynote Speaker will be Dr. Shaun Harper, Professor of Education, Africana Studies, and Gender Studies Executive Director, Center for the Study of Race and Equity in Education, USC. Workshops will address equity in education, and how school psychologists can help all students achieve. Online registration is available until September 25.
School districts, SELPAs, county offices of education and parents are invited to check out CASP’s LEP Directory. This directory features listings by name, city and languages spoken of licensed educational psychologists located throughout California.
