Welcome to National School Social Work Week in BCPS! group - 3

Every year, National School Social Work Week is celebrated during the first full week of March. As we celebrate this year, Baltimore County Public Schools is proud to honor the 73 men and women who work as school social workers to support our students and their success.

School social workers are specialized support personnel who play a fundamental role in creating a positive school climate and essential partnerships between the home, school, and community to ensure student academic success.

School social workers assist children and families by examining factors in the home, school, and/or community that are impacting a student’s educational success and then assist in reducing those barriers. These barriers may include, but are not limited to, behavioral difficulties, social competencies, mental health concerns, learning factors such as special education needs, homelessness, basic family needs, and economic factors.
