Licensed School Psychologist
The Kansas Department of Education (KSDE) issues the educator license for school psychologists. If you are a graduate student in education who wishes to become licensed as a PK-12 school psychologist, you must first complete the Educational Specialist (Ed.S.) degree program in School Psychology. Upon completion of the Ed.S. degree requirements, including the Ed.S. research project and ETS exam, you may be recommended for the initial two-year license as a school psychologist in Kansas by filing a Form 1 application on the KSDE web site.
If you are planning to start internship in the fall, you must complete the Ed.S degree requirements by the end of the summer session and file for the degree. Upon satisfactory completion of the internship experience (typically a one year, full-time on the job), you will be recommended for full licensure/certification at the PK-12 level.
