    School Social Workers

    School social workers are a vital part of the educational process by using their expertise to promote the healthy development of the whole child and assist students and parents in obtaining the help and resources available to achieve their goals. Not only do they collaborate with the entire educational staff to remove barriers to academic success but they provide direct and indirect services to address issues including social, emotional, and mental health. They also work with various community agencies to provide tools for students and their families to function and be productive in every phase of school and social life.
