School Social Workers

School Social Workers are trained professionals who provide a link between the home, school and community through support services that positively impact the development of the whole child. School Social Workers engage the school, family, teachers and/or community in a problem-solving process to promote positive change and eliminate barriers to learning. School Social Workers receive referrals from the community, parents, school staff, and students when students display poor attendance, failing grades, effects of family crisis and/or emotional and behavioral concerns. 

Each school has an assigned School Social Worker to assist as needed.
