The fiscal year for TASP is coming to an end. We have had a very successful year with an increase in membership, lots of involvement at the state department, and a well attended Fall Conference and Spring Institute. Over the year, we received lots of great feedback from you and will be implementing the results of our first survey to make improvements in the coming years. TASP strives to be a professional organization that is helpful, supportive, informative, and an advocate for the field. Please consider renewing your TASP membership for the 2016-2017 fiscal year.

The PREPaRE: School Crisis and Intervention Training in Columbia was a success!! For three days in June, school psychologists gathered in Columbia to strengthen their skills in crisis prevention and response. The PREPaRE curriculum has been developed by the National Association of School Psychologists (NASP) as part of NASP's decade-long leadership in providing evidence-based resources and consultation related to school crisis prevention and response.
