School social workers provide the following services to support smart, safe, and nurturing schools:

  1. Work collaboratively to mobilize the resources of the school and community to meet the educational needs of students and families as well as to facilitate access to mental health services. 
  2. Provide intervention, consultation, and counseling for students who are experiencing significant difficulties that adversely impact educational experiences.
  3. Participate in multidisciplinary team meetings (e.g. Child Study) to assist in the development of Tier 1, 2, and 3 interventions to address concerns that impact students’ academic and/or behavioral performance.
  4. Interview parents and conduct appropriate assessments to assist in the process of eligibility determination for possible special education services.
  5. Provide support and advocacy to parents to ensure positive engagement with school and their community through direct intervention (e.g. parenting skill sessions), consultation, and connection to community resources. 
  6. Work collaboratively with all professionals within the school to provide crisis intervention, violence prevention, and suicide prevention services.
