Who we are

School Social Workers are advocates who help students achieve academic success by linking the home, school, and community. In order to reach this goal, School Social Workers provide support services to remove barriers to student success. These support services include intervention, crisis support, and mental health counseling, addressing issues of non-attendance and truancy, and behavioral assessments to name a few.
