Focus areas for 2019-2020

  • Developing ways to address the shortage of school psychologists in Delaware
  • Responding to the potential changes in special education eligibility regulations
  • Sharing information regarding pending local legislation that impacts school psychologists


**NEW - 2/12/2020**

We are soliciting feedback from members in regards to the proposed changes in regulations regarding MTSS and special education evaluations/eligibility. We will be using this feedback to submit a public comment on behalf of DASP members to the Delaware Department of Education. We have a limited window in which to review the proposed regulations and submit comment, but here is the process we will follow:

  • DASP leadership will review the proposed regulations and identify priorities in which we will be seeking member feedback.
  • Members will be sent a brief survey about those priorities to complete. The survey will also include an opportunity for members to provide feedback about any other element of the proposed regulations.
  • The DASP GPR Committee, in conjunction with the Executive Board, will review that feedback and draft our public comment.
  • This draft public comment will be sent to the membership for feedback.
  • The DASP GPR Committee, in conjunction with the Executive Board, will review that feedback and complete the final version of the public comment. 
  • This final version will be submitted to DDOE within the timelines specified, and shared with our membership.

Please check back here for updates and timelines! Links will activate as we go through the process detailed above for each regulations.
