Attached is information shared at an RTI Task Force meeting in Nashville last week. It appears that the State Board of Education will hold a FINAL READING on this matter on February 1! The amendment recommends the "elimination of the discrepancy method and adoption of a method based on responsiveness to intervention as the primary criterion for determining whether a child has a specific learning disability in Tennessee." No matter your opinion, TASP encourages all school psychologists to respond and take part in the policy process.
The Psychology Department of Tennessee State University invites applications for a tenure-track assistant professor position in School Psychology to begin August 2013. We are particularly interested in a colleague who will work collaboratively to develop a strong research program, supervise graduate students in the department's M.S. and Ph.D. School Psychology programs, and assist with program development, evaluation and accreditation. Teaching responsibilities include primarily graduate courses in the candidate's area of expertise and departmental need. Other responsibilities include supervision of theses, dissertations and practicum and service involvement at the department, college, university, professional, and public levels.
Looking for a way to become more involved with School Psychology and TASP? Why not volunteer to be on the TASP Board? There are several open positions that you would be perfect for!!! You can volunteer as much or as little time as you have available. TASP is always excited to have new volunteers and fresh ideas.
