The 2021 TASP Legislative Platform

The 87th Legislative Session has begun! The official TASP Legislative Platform for 2021 has been approved and adopted by the executive board. Based on current state and national issues, input from membership, and following our vision and mission statement, TASP will be working with our legislative committee and allied organizations to advocate for:

  • Increased access to school mental health services
  • Improved access to school psychological services
  • Promotion of best practices for safe and supportive schools
  • Advancing social justice for all students

Read more of the full legislative platform now so that you all can not only see what your state organization is up to, but so that you can use it as a tool as you engage in your own advocacy efforts! We are also tracking this updated list of proposed bills. Stay tuned in as there may be opportunities for you to contact your elected legislators to advocate for school psychologists and the children and youth we serve through calls to action this year!
