Family-School Collaboration Services: Beliefs into Action

The recently adopted NASP "Model for Comprehensive and Integrated School Psychological Services" consists of 10 domains of practice that describe the competencies of school psychologists to effectively support the positive educational, behavioral, and mental health outcomes of all students. Anastasia Skalski (2010), NASP Director of Professional Policy and Practice, recently pointed out that the adoption of this new model signals a wonderful advocacy opportunity to publicly talk about school psychologists' roles and responsibilities. The seventh domain of this model is a systems-level standard entitled, "Family-School Collaboration Services." Family-school partnering focuses on student success. Family refers to all primary caregivers, school refers to all members of the school community, and partnering represents a conscious, collaborative, relational process that promotes trust and communication and leads to shared responsibility for student success. "School" could be placed in front of "family" to emphasize the responsibility of educators to include families. Building upon scientific advances in the field, the goal of this article is to elaborate and provide resources related to each facet of Domain 7. (Contains 1 table.)
