Abstract/Excerpt

Each year the Graduate Education Committee of the National Association of School Psychologists (NASP) administers the National School Psychology Program Database Survey. Data regarding the status of graduate education in school psychology have been collected annually for both specialist and doctoral programs since 2010. This report for the 2017–2018 academic year summarizes data collected from the directors of all known school psychology programs and provides estimates regarding selected outcomes for those programs. During the 2017–2018 academic year, an estimated 10,121 current students (including interns) were enrolled in school psychology programs. Furthermore, an estimated 3,116 first year students were enrolled, whereas an estimated 2,708 students (2,198 specialist-level and 510 doctoral-level) graduated from school psychology programs. Approximately 90% of specialist-level program graduates work in schools. In contrast, approximately 60% of doctoral-level program graduates work in schools, while 14% of doctoral graduates work as faculty members within a university setting. Additional data include information regarding credit hour requirements, financial support, enrollment, internship placement, and student outcomes.
