July 23, 2007

MINNEAPOLIS, July 23, 2007 – Antanas “Tony” Levinskas, PhD, NCSP, a core faculty member in the school psychology specialization at Capella University, has been elected to the executive board of directors of the Minnesota School Psychologists Association (MSPA). Capella is an accredited* online university based in Minneapolis with nearly 85 percent of its students pursuing master’s or PhD degrees. The online university’s master’s degree and specialist certificate programs in school psychology are designed around National Association of School Psychologists standards. Capella offers one of the only online psychology degrees related to school psychology.

Levinskas, whose three-year tenure on the MSPA board began July 1, says he is looking forward to working with the various association committees, including:  continuing education, legislative, public relations, and professional practice and ethics. The MSPA is dedicated to informing and supporting school psychologists in Minnesota and has more than 225 members at this time. Levinskas said one of the important issues facing the newly elected MSPA board are the changes in IDEA 2004 (Individuals with Disabilities Education Act) and what they mean to school psychologists.  

“Minnesota has many wonderfully talented school psychologists, and it is truly an honor to be able to serve them via the MSPA board. I’m excited about the opportunity to communicate and promote dialogue about the critical issues affecting school psychologists and the children and families we serve,” said Levinskas, who has more than 10 years experience working as a school psychologist in a variety of school settings.
