Congratulations SCASP2NASP 2017 Finalists
SCASP has had an exciting School Psychology Awareness Week. The SCASP2NASP finalists led the way with spreading awareness and gathered over 4,000 votes as a combined team! The team worked throughout the upstate with Joseph Sims in Spartanburg 5, to the urban setting in the midlands with Gina. And, finally, the rural areas of Lexington 2 with Marjorie! All three candidates reflect a great example of School Psychology in South Carolina. Please stay tuned to these three amazing individuals, and with Gina in her travels to San Antonio.

Continuing Education related to Domestic Violence
On January 29, 2015, Governor Nikki Haley established the Domestic Violence Task Force through Executive Order 2015-04. The Task Force was charged with tackling the cultural issues surrounding domestic violence in the State of South Carolina. One of the specific areas targeted was education for licensed professionals in the state of South Carolina. We’ve learned that most of our licensees don’t get training regarding domestic violence and those that do aren’t aware of the resources available to their patients who are in need of help.
