  3. 2. Why should school psychologists care about data teaming? • We bring to the table unique expertise in • Data-Based Decision-Making and Accountability* AND • Consultation and Collaboration* • School psychologists can and should provide leadership in creating a data-driven culture in schools and helping staff develop and increase assessment and intervention literacy (Gullikson, 2001; McLeod, 2005) • “If you’re not at the table, you’re on the menu.” * NOTE: These are the 2 aspects identified in the new NASP Model for Comprehensive and Integrated School Psychological Services as permeating all aspects of service delivery.
