School Social Worker

Promotes School Success

A School Social Worker is a master's level professional who holds a Service Certificate from the Professional Standards Commission and has attained a master's degree in a practice-oriented and research-based program approved by the Council of Social Work Education. The Gordon County Schools Social Work Program works to assist students, families, teachers, and administrators with a wide range of social, emotional, economic, and other problems that may affect the academic achievement, school attendance, or social adjustment of students. School Social Workers collaborate with the school, home, and community to expand resources to students in need. The school social worker works with the student services teams at each school, makes home visits, and is an active member on community agency boards.

Some of the most common issues a School Social Worker will assist with are as follows:

  • Attendance
  • Homelessness
  • Crisis at a School
  • Those at risk of dropping-out
  • Child Abuse referrals
  • Mental Health referrals
  • Juvenile Court
