Time to Renew!

It's time to renew your membership for the 2017-2018 year. The TASP board has been busy this year striving to improve the services we provide. We are working to build a stronger relationship with the state department to ensure our voices are heard, improving the ways we advocate for our profession, and working with NASP to evaluate and enhance our organization. We have realigned our regions in hopes of strengthening our communications and opportunities for members. Plus, stayed tuned for the launch of our new website!

SPED Disability Eligibility Standards Update

Below is a reprint from the TN DOE School Psychologists Update (5/25/2017):

The State Board of Education has approved the revised disability standards (i.e., the required evaluation procedures and evaluation participants). The changes will be effective on July 1, 2017. Guidance documents on evaluation procedures and trainings are forthcoming. For those unable to attend trainings in person, there will be a recorded webinar posted reviewing proposed changes.
