School Social Workers

School Social Workers bridge the gap between home, school, and community to support and advocate for struggling students and their families. The primary goal of school social work is to address barriers to success and to provide the resources that students and families need to achieve success both in school and in life. As integral members of an interdisciplinary educational team, school social workers provide both direct and indirect services to students and their families, services that empower them to provide for their family's basic needs and to resolve any social, emotional, or behavioral issues that may be hindering their student's academic success. Just some of the many services that School Social Workers provide are:

  • Professional Case Management
  • Crisis Prevention and Intervention
  • Advocacy for Students, Parents, and the School
  • Referrals to Social Service Resources available in the Community 
  • Referrals to and Facilitation of Social Service Resources provided on the School Campus
  • Home Visits
  • Attendance Monitoring and Truancy Intervention Services
  • Individual and Group Counseling
  • Support Groups for Students and Parents
  • Parent Education and Training
  • Safe School Climate and Prevention Programming
  • Facilitation of other Therapeutic Student Services Programs
  • Collaboration with Educational and Student Services Professionals
  • Collaboration with Community Agencies and Organizations
  • Solicitation and Facilitation of Community Involvement in the School
  • Staff Training and Development
  • Policy Advocacy and Development

If you would like to receive more information about how an LPS School Social Worker may be able to help you or your family, please feel free to complete our SSW Family Assessment Form and turn it in to your student's school. Once it is received, an LPS School Social Worker will contact you.

Confidentiality

Privacy and confidentiality are essential to having an effective school social work program. Liberty Public Schools recognizes the importance of good communication and good working relationships between students, parents, and the school. Therefore, every effort will be made to protect student and parent privacy rights except under certain limited conditions. These conditions generally include safety issues (harm to self and/or others), legal issues, and professional responsibilities according to the NASW School Social Worker Code of Ethics.

Mission Statement

Liberty School Social Workers are dedicated to the district’s educational mission by providing services that strengthen home, school, and community partnerships and supporting students

well being.
