School Social Work Services


The National Association of Social Workers defines the role of a school

social worker as follows,

“The School Social Work Profession consistently focuses on

coordinating the efforts of schools, families, and communities towards

helping students improve their academic achievement and social,

emotional, and behavioral competence by using its unique

perspective of viewing the person in his or her environment. 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”

● School Social Workers are in all Laurel Public Schools, working as a

team with administrators, school counselors, and teachers.

● School Social Work services provide services throughout the school

day, which may include in class support, individual or group therapy,

and consultation with school staff/families. School Social Workers

have access to outside resources that can assist families with daily

living and needs.

● School Social Workers hold a clinical master’s degree in the field of

social work and are licensed through the State of Montana.

● School Social Workers use evidenced based interventions to inform

their service delivery in the school setting as well as varying models

of therapeutic approaches to best serve the student in need.
