School Social Work is one of the most dynamic practice specialties within the field of social work. A school social worker's day is filled with many unique challenges that require specialized skills, knowledge, flexibility, persistence and creativity. We strive to improve social and emotional and academic outcomes for all students. School Social Workers are trained in mental health concerns, behavioral concerns, positive behavioral support, academic and classroom support, as well as individual and group counseling techniques.

School social workers enhance their school district's ability to meet its academic mission, recognizing that home, school and community collaboration is the key to achieving student success!
