Improving Student Outcomes

School Psychologists: Improving Student and School Outcomes provides examples of how school psychologists' services link to research and policies regarding improved outcomes for students.

Dignity for All Students

The "Dignity for All Students Act" will help ensure that school administrators and educators have the tools and resources in place to afford all students – and particularly those who are targeted by bullies – an educational environment in which they can thrive.

Just the Facts, Sexual Orientation

See Just the Facts, a primer for principals, educators and school personnel regarding sexual orientation and youth.

Ready to Learn, Empowered to Teach

Ready to Learn, Empowered to Teach outlines guiding principles for effective education. Concludes that education presents the greatest opportunity that we have to ensure the success of all children and, ultimately, our country.

New Antibullying Websites

In the aftermath of the U.S. Department of Education’s first bullying summit, a new website,www.bullyinginfo.org, emerges, allowing for an easy, more centralized access to federal resources. Also see their partner site Stop Bullying Now.

Cyberbullying Resources

The Cyberbullying Research Center has released five new research-based fact sheets, all summarizing recent findings being published in peer-reviewed academic journals. They cover: Cyberbullying and Self-Esteem, Cyberbullying and Suicide, Cyberbullying and Strain, Trends in Adolescents' Social Networking Use, and Changes in Social Networking Use from 2006 to 2009. Also, here is an elementary level site on internet safety. Additional resources may be found on Enough is Enough.

Building Character, School Climate

School psychologists have been championing these efforts for years. As an example, take a look at one New York Middle School's parent orientation handout entitled "Building Character" that was developed by their school psychologist.
