School social workers enhance our schools' ability to meet their academic missions. They are instrumental in establishing an effective setting for teaching, learning, and the attainment of competence and confidence for our students. School social workers bring unique knowledge and skills to the school system and the student services team. They are are especially skilled in providing services to our students who face serious challenges to school success, including poverty, disability, discrimination, abuse, addiction, bullying, loss of a loved one, and other barriers to learning.
Please join us in recognizing March as School Social Work Month. Thank you, TUSD school social workers for making a difference in our schools, our families, and our community.
