    RISPA has always advocated for the recognition of the NCSP credential in RI schools. During a fall conference survey conducted in 2006, psychologists from only 3 districts reported being compensated in any way for having their NCSP.

    As the financial landscape of education in our state has waned, it has become increasingly more difficult to advocate for the NCSP. Have times changed at all in the past 8 years? RISPA is interested in hearing any related feedback...positive or negative on efforts to have the NCSP recognized in your school district.

    I would like to pose a question.

    What does ethics mean to you and how does it guide your everyday interactions?
