Purpose of the Accreditation Committee:
The Accreditation Committee has three main purposes:

  1. To develop and periodically update ISPA’s two accreditation documents, the first describes the goals and standards for professional training programs and the second provides guidance on the steps those running programs should take when seeking accreditation from ISPA.
  2. To carry out accreditations of school psychology programs.  The accreditation Committee Chair will nominate a team of up to 4 ISPA members to carry out this task.
  3. To run workshops at ISPA conferences to train ISPA members in how to carry out accreditations.

Membership of the committee comprises practitioners and trainers of school psychologists who have attended one or more training workshops at an ISPA conference.  The Committee meets annually at ISPA conferences and conducts other business throughout the year through email correspondence.
