The present investigation attempted to assess the role of the school psychologist in the State of Kansas. One hundred twenty-two Kansas school psychologists responded to a survey concerning their present role, ideal role, and satisfaction with graduate training. The information provided by the respondents indicated that Kansas school psychologists view themselves as consultants but nevertheless spend a majority of time with psychometric duties. Schools tended to differ on opinions over certain aspects of their testing role, in-service training, behavior modification, teacher certification, and psychotherapy. Respondents also indicated dissatisfaction with certain aspects of their training. The findings were discussed in terms of implications for school psychology training institutions. Suggestions for further survey research of this type were made.
