Delivery of Comprehensive School Psychological Services: An Educator's Guide.
American Psychological Association, Washington, DC.
School psychologists constitute a major available resource to administrators and school boards as they develop comprehensive plans to increase educational effectiveness and student achievement. This publication shows how school administrators and board members can obtain the greatest return on their investment in school psychological services. While the quality of school leadership in today's schools is better than ever, school boards and administrators have clearly delineated the enormous problems that they face in educating our nation's children. With the passage of the national education goals, educators are seeking new and effective means to address the problems that face America's schools. This guide is intended to be an education tool about school psychology for school administrators, the general public, and others who might use the services of school psychologists. It describes features that are often involved in hiring school psychologists, in using their services, and in making changes based on their recommendations. Chapters are: (1) Your School Psychologist; (2) Planning and Developing a School Psychological Services Program; (3) Enhancement of School and District Goals Through Use of School Psychological Services; and (4) Legal, Ethical, and Professional Issues in the Delivery of Psychological Services in Schools. Appendices contain a sample interview form, an additional reading list with 78 references, and Psychology in the Schools Program Mission Statement. (JBJ)
