Why do schools need school social workers?
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.
