    social work week

    During the month of March, we turn the spotlight on School Social Workers! School social workers are essential and help reduce barriers that students and families face on a daily basis. In CCS, our team says THANK YOU for supporting our work.  We encourage you to join with us in giving back to those who help make life better for many of our CCS students. Junior Charity League of Concord has one goal - helping children in Cabarrus County! If you would like to help them by making a toiletry donation, please click here for more information.

Why do schools need school social workers?

  • change futures
    Children today are increasingly victims of many social forces that negatively
    affect their role as students. The family is in a state of change and until it
    becomes stabilized, in whatever form, children's unmet physical and emotional
    needs will continue to interfere with their ability to learn and adjust in school.

                                                            (School Social Work Association of America)

NC School Social Work Vision Statement

  • To create nurturing relationships with students that embrace students' academic achievement and personal success as globally
    productive citizens in the 21st century. We utilize leadership, advocacy and collaboration to promote overall academic success by
    providing services that strengthen home, school and community partnerships and alleviate barriers to learning.
