West Sonoma County High School District School Psychologist Honored by Statewide Association

Sacramento, CA — Christa Forslund, a school psychologist in the West Sonoma County High School District for over 10 years received the Nadine M. Lambert Outstanding School Psychologist Award for her contributions to the profession by the California Association of School Psychologists (CASP) at its recent annual convention in Orange County.

Forslund’s varied career as a longtime school psychologist includes: serving a local high school and a rural K-8 school as an itinerant school psychologist; chairing IEP meetings; providing ERHMS counseling services; and being the consortium’s behaviorist

Colleagues agree that Forslund is a master of detail; she thoroughly performs each special education evaluation with diligence – and always contemplates what is appropriate and best for the specific child.

The Nadine M. Lambert Outstanding School Psychologist Award recognizes the contributions school psychologists have made to the schools, students and profession, and is awarded on a regional basis. Christa Forslund was recognized as the Outstanding School Psychologist for the North Coast region.

The announcement of the award comes in time for California School Psychology Week held on Nov. 13-17, which highlights the work of school psychologists via a variety of activities in districts statewide.

The California Association of School Psychologists, with over 1,800 members, is the largest state school psychologists association in the country. It provides continuing education, resource and referral and advocacy to school psychologists throughout the state. Formed in the early 1950s, the association works to ensure safe learning environments for all K-12 students.
