Resources from NASP

  Focus on Safety & Security in our Schools

We were all saddened by the recent violence and tragic loss of life in Charlottesville, Virginia. With instances of hate speech and violent actions displayed in our society, it is important that we are all part of the effort to support students during difficult and uncertain times.

As school psychologists, we are in a position to help students navigate difficult conversations, create safe and secure learning environments for all students, and be advocates for the systems and services that lower barriers and create genuine, sustained equity and opportunity.

NASP has created resources to support and facilitate our work in these areas.
