Listen to the Mary & Melissa Show Today April 24 at Noon EST.  District of Columbia Public Schools (DCPS) has proposed to eliminate Special Education Coordinators and have their responsibilities assumed by School Psychologists.  This is a change – proposed to commence in the upcoming school year - that would affect all children in special education in DCPS.  Is this a good idea?  According to DCPS, this new arrangement is based on a national model.  Join us today to discuss this model.  What is it? Is it applicable to DC?  Should parents be worried?  Our special guests today are:


Eric Rossen, PhD, NCSP

Director of Professional Development and Standards

National Association of School Psychologists


Dr. Denise Daniels, NASP’s DC delegate and school psychologist in DCPS
