|Agency Decision Summary||
At its meeting on March 15, 2022, the Board voted to take no action on this petition. This decision was based on the variety of experience school psychologists limited obtain and the inability to provide a general acceptance of all school psychologist limited experience as equivalent to residency training. The Board, however, intends to review this issue and related training and residency requirement issues at a later meeting.
