The Queen’s Gambit: Advocacy Strategies to Make Your Voice Heard
1.5 hours running time
With a clear need for expanded and enhanced mental health services for students, California state policymakers are looking to schools as places to serve students and communities. School psychologists have long been school-based mental health providers. Yet what, exactly, they do beyond their role in special education assessors is not well known by school administrators and public policy makers. This workshop will focus on how school psychologists can advocate at the state level and local school site level to build programs to promote school climate, mental health and wellness interventions and multi-tiered system of support.
- Participants will gain an advocacy perspective to their profession.
- Participants will be updated on CASP’s advocacy efforts.
- Participants will be offered advocacy strategies as a vehicle to influence state public policy.
- Participants will be provided an advocacy strategy for resource allocation decisions via LCAP/LCFF funding at the site level.
