OSPA Social Media Policy

To provide the best possible experience to all participants in OSPA social networking group (i.e., Oklahoma School Psychologist Association Facebook Group, OSPA Forums), we have established some basic guidelines for participation.

While this is a great medium to come together, network, and disseminate information with fellow school psychologists we must also be mindful of the information that is conveyed through our different social media outlets. By participating through our social media forums, you agree that you have read and will follow the rules and guidelines set for these groups. 

Social Networking Guidelines

OSPA recognizes that social networking sites can provide valuable outreach among member and nonmember school psychologists and facilitate interaction among school psychologists and the dissemination of information.

What is a School Psychologist?

School psychologists help children and youth succeed academically, socially, behaviorally, and emotionally. They collaborate with educators, parents, and other professionals to create safe, healthy, and supportive learning environments that strengthen connections between home, school, and the community for all students.
