Jennifer Frohlich, M.Ed., NCSP, has been recognized by the Washington State Association of School Psychologists (WSASP) as their 2020 recipient for Best Practices in Assessment. Frohlich was nominated by her BSD colleagues and praised for staying current on assessment practices and quickly learning best practices assessment during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

A large part of the role of a school psychologist in Bellevue School District schools is to support the evaluation of students’ needs and the potential impact on a student’s ability to learn. Frequently, this involves tests in a one-on-one setting or getting information from parents, guardians and educators. WSASP recognized Frohlich for adapting to the challenges that the ongoing pandemic presented in completing evaluations in valid, but innovative ways.

Vic Anderson, principal at Bellevue High School, praised Frohlich for her work with Bellevue Students and thanked her for giving back to students, families, staff and others entering the profession. “[She] is a very deserving and valuable member of our community,” said Anderson. She is also recognized for giving back to the school psychologist profession by supervising practicum students and interns and being an accessible resource for teachers and students.
