2016 LSPA Membership Survey


The LSPA Executive Council is focused on addressing the issue of the critical shortage of school psychologists across our state, continuing our efforts to develop model professional growth/evaluation methods for our discipline, and providing top quality professional development to our members. In order to get your input regarding these critical areas, we would like for every member to complete this short survey.


Each participant that completes the survey and provides their contact information at the end will be entered into a drawing for a $25 gift certificate at Blue Dog Cafe in Lafayette, to be given at the conference. Follow this link or copy and paste in your browser to take the short survey:
