P-12: Another Dimension to Evaluation
2:30 p.m. – 3:20 p.m.

Although there are theoretical frameworks that may guide how to evaluate school psychological services, there is a dearth of research that examines implementation in practice. The purpose of this presentation is to describe the process of how to conduct an evaluation of school psychological services. Through program evaluation, school districts can achieve a better understanding of the state of their psychological services, allowing them to plan and allocate their resources more effectively in order to promote equity in schools. Participants will be provided with practical resources and knowledge that will assist them with undertaking program evaluation in their districts.
