As school social workers, we are viewed as the link between the school, home and the community.

We are a part of the educational team to promote and support students academic and social success by providing services that may include:

  • Assessing student needs
  • Help manage mental health symptoms
  • Individual and group therapeutic services
  • Crisis intervention and prevention
  • Work with both general education and special education students
  • Advocating for students
  • Education and training for parents and staff
  • Information and collaboration with community resources
  • Knowledgeable about rights for our homeless students and families

School social workers help students to:

  • cope with difficult and crisis situations
  • develop self-esteem
  • learn problem solving, conflict resolution, and healthy decision making skills
  • have positive and healthy relationships
