Join us for a continuing discussion about the critical need for school psychologists across NC. Our guest panelists are nationally certified school psychologists working in NC rural public schools: Racheal Gliniak and Samantha Manduca.
Racheal works in the Wayne County Public Schools and Samantha is currently with the Stanly County Public Schools. They are passionate about promoting the positive impacts that school psychologists can have on student outcomes and advocating for the needs of school psychologists.
Our discussion will center on how the current shortage of school psychologists makes it difficult to meet student needs because it results in unmanageable caseloads, an inability to provide preventive services, and too narrow a roll for school psychologists who are limited to legally mandated special education compliance efforts. Panelists will share with attendees potential solutions to filling current vacancies as well as long-term strategies for increasing the number of state allocated positions.
