About School Social Workers

Students are impacted by many social forces in their life to include their home, school, and community environments.  To be most prepared to learn, students must have their basic, social, and emotional needs met first.

School Social Workers provide short and long term support, advocacy, and resource connection to help students achieve academic, social, and emotional success.  They act as a liaison between students, the school system, their families, and the greater community.
