The purpose of this survey is to understand current practices of school psychologists with respect to family engagement.  Understanding this information may help the field learn about the types of activities that school psychologists engage in most frequently, as well as barriers and facilitators to family engagement that occur within the school setting.  This information may help guide faculty, supervisors, and practitioners understand critical challenges of working with families in school psychology practice and develop methods to improve outcomes for students and families.

This survey is intended for individuals who are current, practicing school psychologists or those who deliver psychological services (e.g., assessment, consultation, direct intervention) to students in the school setting in some capacity (such as a graduate student in a school psychology program or a behavioral specialist).  If you do not currently provide psychological services to students within your current job role, you may discontinue the survey at this time.
