Practicum Sites

To assist students who are studying school psychology with finding appropriate field sites, the Washington State Association of School Psychologists surveyed our members about school district practicum and internship field sites. WSASP does not verify each member's survey input and highly recommends checking the individual district's website and to seek additional information from individual districts if there are questions about any of this information. We appreciate feedback if inaccurate information is identified in our list. 

This data is from our January 2017 survey.
