 School Social Work is a practice specialty that provides unique services to students, families and communities, in order to help students receive maximum benefits from the school program.  Students are the primary focus of the educational process, and are viewed by the Social Worker in relation to the family, the school, the neighborhood, and the community.  School Social Workers contribute knowledge of and concern for the wide range of social, emotional, cultural, and economic differences among children, families, and communities.
