The goal of social work within the school setting is to help children have the most successful day at school- be it socially, emotionally, or academically. Social work services may consist of short-term individual counseling, small group counseling, and/or classroom support.
The social worker serves as a liaison between the school and home, as well as a link between parents and community resources. Typically school social work services at Durham Community School are primarily limited to students that have social work as part of their Individualized Education Plan.
