    School Social Workers are trained mental health professionals with a master’s degree in social work from a university accredited by the Council on Social Work Education, who are licensed by the Virginia Department of Education. We are the link between home, school and the community by providing services to promote and support students’ academic and social success.  School Social Workers help parents, students, and school staff identify needs that interfere with learning and work to get the services they need to resolve social, emotional and behavioral problems through comprehensive socio-cultural assessments, collaboration, individual counseling, groups, and Restorative Practices.
