A school social worker is an advocate who helps students reach their potential in the school setting. To help achieve this goal, the school social worker provides support services to help overcome obstacles to a child's success.
Today's school counselors are vital members of the education team. They help all students in the areas of academic achievement, personal/social development and career development, ensuring today's students become the productive, well-adjusted adults of tomorrow. *Sources: America School Counseling Association
