Resources for COVID-19

We are facing a new reality where California school and educational psychologists are even more of a critical resource, even as you consider how to provide high-quality services during the pandemic. CASP is committed to helping our members throughout this crisis. We have gathered a wide array of resources regarding the virus, actions schools are taking, and how psychologists and others can help students. We will continue updating the posted resources as they become available. To share resources, please send an email to


Guidelines for Evaluating School Psychologists

The job of a school psychologist is not like that of a teacher, school counselor or administrator. However, they are often evaluated during performance reviews as if they are. This publication was developed to give administrators guidelines on how best to evaluate the job performance of your school psychologists.

Save these downloadable documents to your computer and use them (or change them) for evaluating the job performance and self-evaluation of school psychologists. The page numbers correspond with the pages in the .pdf document above.

Mental Health Guide

School psychologists, school counselors, and school social workers have been working since this summer to craft the first-ever comprehensive guide to the mental health services these professionals provide in schools. We are excited to present the result of that effort, Fostering the Whole Child: A Guide to School-Based Mental Health Professionals. In this time of crisis, with mental needs growing exponentially, we hope this guide will be a useful tool for all schools in designing, funding, and implementing mental health services. Enjoy – and share it with your school administration!
