What do School Social Workers Do?

School Social Workers serve as the link between students' families and the school. I collaborate with parents, guardians, teachers and other school officials to ensure that students reach their academic and personal potential to be globally productive citizens in the twenty-first century. Support services are provided to students to motivate them to be their best when they are faced with barriers such as; absenteeism, abuse/neglect, pregnancy, addictions, poverty, homelessness, etc. Each situation is assessed and individual plans are developed with the student/family.
