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.
