CYPRESS — The CFISD Psychological Services Department was named the 2018 recipient of the Texas Association of School Psychologists’ (TASP) “Outstanding Delivery of School Psychological Services” district award, receiving the distinction Oct. 25 at the 26th Annual TASP Professional Development Convention in Dallas.
Only one school district statewide receives this honor annually, which goes to a district that recognizes and implements best practices or innovative practices of school psychology that align with the National Association of School Psychologists’ (NASP) practice domains. They include data-based decision making and accountability, consultation and collaboration, and family-school collaboration services.
The award also considers programs within a psychological services department, direct and indirect services to students and parents or guardians, and research, grants or projects.
The CFISD Psychological Services Department was named the 2018 recipient of the “Outstanding Delivery of School Psychological Services” district award by the Texas Association of School Psychologists.
“Receiving this recognition from the Texas Association of School Psychologists is incredibly rewarding to our department,” said Dr. Traci Schluter, the CFISD Psychological Services Department director. “Our staff and interns have worked to establish a comprehensive model of service delivery to support the needs identified among those who comprise our population of 117,000-plus students, parents, families and district staff in the Cy-Fair community. Our model focuses on prevention and intervention as well as the strengthening of mental health support within the educational environment. We strive to implement direct services to targeted groups of students, indirect services to larger populations of students and families, and coordination of services throughout the community.”
Schluter submitted the nomination for the department, which is comprised of 24 full-time and six part-time staff, and eight doctoral psychology interns. Among the highlights included were collaboration services, online resources for parents, parenting courses, family training groups and therapeutic offerings through the Family Interaction Training Clinic.
“Each member of our department derives great fulfillment in the opportunity to utilize their knowledge, training and skills in service to others,” Schluter said. “As the director of psychological services, it is a tremendous privilege to work alongside these compassionate and highly competent professionals who collectively make up the CFISD Psychological Services family.”
