President’s Message

Dr. Larrissa Henderson, Ed. D., Pupil Services Director

Executive Board President

Welcome to the National Association of Pupil Services Administrators (NAPSA)! We are comprised of school administrators who oversee student services programs, services, and resources. To all returning members, welcome back! If you are a new member or considering membership in our organization, welcome to the one of the greatest national organizations of student support services.

I am excited to take the helm of our organization for the next two years! This has been an unprecedented year for all administrators in the world. Never did we dream we would be educating our students on so many different instructional platforms. As NAPSA starts a new year of service to our members, I encourage you to join us and become a part of the networking, education, and wealth of resources found on our website and during our national conference.

Some of the resource programs overseen by NAPSA members include those in the areas of nursing, counseling, registration, truancy, discipline, transportation, ELL (English Language Learners), students with special needs and services, home schooling, homebound services, and COVID reporting, as well as local, state, and federal reporting and policies affecting these services and students. I cannot think of another group that comprises such a vast majority of administrators and service providers within our schools.

Our membership benefits include a one million dollar professional liability insurance policy including legal representation, along with the fellowship and networking opportunities you will find with professionals across the country who share similar responsibilities as yourself. Thank you for joining our great organization – NAPSA! I’m sure that you will benefit from and contribute to our organization. Remember, we are many members, but one body with a common focus – the well-being of our students and those we serve.
