School Social Workers Recognized March 5-11

APS has about 100 school social workers who provide a vital link among the school, home and community.

Social workers help people get back on track -- that's the theme of this year's Social Workers Week which is March 5-11.

The theme was selected to highlight the significant role that social workers play in helping people deal with day-to-day problems and overcome barriers that prevent them from leading meaningful and productive lives.

APS has about 100 school social workers. Their responsibilities include preparing a social and developmental history on a child, counseling with a child and family, participation in developing behavioral intervention strategies and integration of schools and community resources.

School social workers provide a vital link among the school, home and community.  Most provide direct and indirect services to students and their families including casework, group and individual work, crisis intervention, consultation and making referrals to community agencies.

School social workers consult with teachers and administrators and frequently participate on teams within the schools.
