What is a School Social Worker?
School Social Workers establish a supportive network of services to bridge the gap between home and school. We work to establish a holistic perspective of a child’s life. A prime goal is the integration of data from home, school and community
Our primary responsibility is to utilize a child/family systems approach promoting partnership between the home, school and community. These services are in the areas of prevention, intervention, advocacy and treatment to help students overcome social, emotional, behavioral and academic challenges.
We also assist administrators, principals, counselors, staff and parents in meeting the educational needs of students.
