SAISD District Social Workers

SCHOOL SOCIAL WORK PURPOSE

School social workers are an integral link between school, home, and community in helping students achieve academic success. They work directly with school administrators as well as students and families, providing leadership in forming mental health intervention, crisis management, and support services. 


SAISD SOCIAL WORK PROGRAM

Social work services are delivered district wide and at the campus level in SAISD.  SAISD employs 37 licensed Master’s level professionals who deliver a broad scope of social work services.  Direct service provision to students is defined based heavily on the state of Texas’ “at-risk” criteria indicators within the Texas Education Code and adopted by the Texas Education Agency.
