SISP Week 2017 (April 24th – April 28th)

Representative Dave Loebsack (IA-02) introduced House Resolution 265, which declares the week of April 24, 2017 through April 28, 2017, as National Specialized Instructional Support Personnel Awareness Week. Specialized Instructional Support Personnel (SISP) are referenced and defined in Federal Education Law.

As a member of the National Alliance for Specialized Instructional Support Personnel (NASISP), the American Music Therapy Association will be a part of celebrating this week, and raising awareness about the important contributions of specialized instructional support personnel in helping students.

NASISP represents over a million Specialized Instructional Support Personnel nationwide. SISP professionals provide and support school-based prevention and intervention services to address barriers to educational success, ensure positive conditions for learning, and help all students achieve academically and ultimately become productive citizens. SISP work with teachers, administrators, and parents to ensure that all students are successful in school.
