School Social Work 101:

School Social Work is a specialized area of practice within the broad field of the social work profession that connects home, school, and community.  School social workers bring a unique knowledge and set of skills to the student services team by using a holistic approach focusing on the student’s environment and resiliency, as well as providing supports for student and families to promote school success.  School Social Workers address a variety of issues that impact a student’s ability to learn including: truancy, family conflict, abuse and neglect, social/emotional stressors, substance abuse, mental health issues, and crisis intervention.  In addition, school social workers are vital in navigating the educational system for parents and accessing community resources for families.
