In December, AASP received a letter from the Arizona Board of Psychologist Examiners (AzBPE) stating they believe some school psychologists are exceeding the exemption from licensure limits granted in state statute. This exemption allows use of the term “psychologist” when working within a school setting for non-licensed school psychologists. AzBPE posed several examples of how a school psychologist might exceed the exemption limits with one example highlighting the practice of contracted services. It appears AzBPE suggests contacting with a school is beyond the limits of licensure exemption.
AASP disagrees. We have consulted with many community members, attorneys, school districts, and other school psychologists. It is our opinion that the exemption from licensure does include contracted employees since contracted school psychologists function within a school setting. Many of you have already viewed this letter and we want to assure you that AASP has been actively working to provide a thoughtful and legally sound response. The AzBPE letter to AASP and our message to AASP membership can be viewed by clicking the links below. Please carefully review the AASP member message since this letter addresses the AzBPE letter in its entirety.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any other concerns or questions.
