Social Emotional

  • School social workers seek to ensure equitable education opportunities; ensure that students are mentally, physically, and emotionally present in the classroom; and promote respect and dignity for all students.
  • The National Association of Social Workers – Standards for School Social Work Services offers the following guiding principles, which address multiple domains of practice:
    1. Education/School Reform: School social work practice is consistent with the academic mission of schools by fostering educational environments that are safe; have supportive, fair, and responsive policies; and emphasize early intervention and positive behavioral interventions.
    2. Social Justice: The school social worker collaborates with and facilitates collaboration among students, parents, community members, administration, teachers, and other school staff to identify ways to intervene early with students who struggle to benefit fully from the educational system.
    3. Multi-tier Interventions: School social workers utilize a three tiered approach relating to prevention and intervention including Tier 1 (school-wide prevention programs), Tier 2 (evidence-informed, small group, and short-term interventions), and Tier 3 (evidence-informed, individual and long-term interventions).

College & Career

The school counselor is a key “go to” student and staff support services professional. Services provided by school counselors address the three domains of the ASCA model:
  • Academic planningSchool counselors work closely with students to plan their course of studies, to support their school performance, to review progress, to set academic goals, as well as to implement academic interventions.
  • Social-emotional development: School counselors focus on the whole development of students, facilitate social/emotional learning opportunities, connect students to activities and electives based on their interest, build home-school-community alliances, and provide on-going individualized attention to ensure student success. 
  • Career and post-secondary development: School counselors help students understand their strengths and talents, and how these abilities can be utilized in various college majors and careers. School counselors aid students in the college admissions process, and all next steps to their secondary education.
