You have a great idea for a program that will help your students, but your school district can’t or won’t pay for it. What can you do? Apply for a California School Psychology Foundation Mini-Grant. These grants of up to $1,500 have been used to pay for anti-bullying programs, parenting programs, even an after-school knitting club. Applications are due Dec. 5.

Students and the Presidential Race Outcome

While emotions vary widely, the outcome of the presidential election has led to questions, worry and fear in some California communities. And, as adults vocalize these concerns, children are listening.
Some educators and parents may not realize they could be heightening anxiety and fear in students through their reactions. NASP has developed two resource papers that may help you help others in these times. To access these papers, click here.

 


Benefits for CASP Members Continue to Grow

Brandman University is now offering scholarships for CASP members who would like to continue their educational pursuits. This new benefit joins the growing list of benefits you can receive simply by joining CASP.

Brandman, CASP’s newest corporate member, offers up to a $5,600 reduction in tuition for selected doctoral programs, as well as major reductions in some graduate and certificate programs.

CASP is continuing to increase the benefits of membership. Benefits introduced this year include:

  • CASP’s new mentoring program. If you have a new position, are coming back into the profession, or are a newly minted school psychologist, it’s great to have someone with which to discuss issues and challenges.
  • Alliant International University is offering CASP members a chance to further their education with a 10% tuition reduction and an application fee waiver when they enroll as a full-time student in one of Alliant’s programs, including its online PsyD in Educational Psychology.
  • HotelStorm offers CASP members savings of 10-55% on hotel rooms throughout the world. This online discount hotel service may have discounts that the others do not.

Visit the Members Area and sign in to view more information about these benefits. To sign up for CASP membership, visit the Membership Page.
