After a review from representatives of the National Association of School Psychologists (NASP), the SDSU College of Education's School Psychology program proved that it is one of the nation's most diverse cohorts of school psychologists.
The review was required as part of the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE)/Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP) review process. The reviewers recommended national recognition for the College’s School Psychology program based upon criteria that emphasized diversity, student success, and faculty competence.
Results shed a positive light on the program, where candidates maintain a 100% pass rate on state licensure exams and each complete a 1,200 hour internship, often in two schools, under two different supervisors. Additionally, high quality faculty members, active in school psychology research, teach the core program courses and analyze student performances to ensure that all candidates meet required standards.
According to the NASP review, the content taught emphasizes multicultural content, processes, and experiences so that our graduates are prepared to meet the needs of increasingly diverse student populations. Also, the program demonstrated how the evaluation of candidates' fieldwork provided evidence about the extent to which critical skills were emerging.
The College is proud of its outstanding School Psychology Program and School Psychology students. Over 80% of our school psychologists come from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds. Furthermore, our graduates are well prepared to help schools become places that promote the academic, emotional, social, and psychological health of all students.
