The Tidewater Region


The Tidewater Region of VASP includes the large cities of Hampton Roads as well as the more rural districts of Western Tidewater. Our goal is to serve as a resource to the school psychologists of the region by providing meaningful professional development opportunities, as well as a forum for school psychologists to connect across our broad and diverse part of the state.
