What does a school social worker do?

School Social Workers are trained mental health professionals with a degree in social work who provide services related to students’ and/or family’s social, emotional, and life adjustments to school and/or society. School Social Workers are the link between the home, school, and community in providing direct as well as indirect services to students, families, and school personnel to promote and support students’ academic and social success.
