School Social Work Week - March 4-10, 2018
School Social Work Week 2018 sponsored by the School Social Work Association of America (SSWAA), is March 4-10, 2018. With the theme "United to Make a Better World," school social workers across the county will highlight their critically important role in helping students every day to meet the academic, social, and emotional challenges on the road to becoming successful and productive young adults.
"Beaverton School District Social Workers wear many hats in their efforts to support students and families in our community. The District's social workers do an amazing job juggling multiple schools and responsibilities, including evening home visits with working parents, planning and delivering quality mental health professional development, and responding to crises throughout the District. In addition, several schools have social workers on staff who provide counseling, consultation and other intervention services," says Todd Nicholson, Administrator for Special Programs. "All of our social workers are truly an asset to students and families throughout the District and I am so thankful for their dedication and hard work."
