School Social Work

Children today are increasingly victims of many social forces that negatively affect their role as students. The family is in a state of change and until it becomes stabilized, in whatever form, children's unmet physical and emotional needs will continue to interfere with their ability to learn and adjust in school.

School social workers pick up where teachers leave off. They are perhaps the professionals best equipped to address the social and psychological issues that children face.

School social workers bring unique knowledge and skills to the school system and the student services team.
