School Social Workers/Family Specialists play a crucial role in the CHCCS district by removing barriers to children’s academic, social and emotional success through our work with students, families, school faculty/staff, and community support agencies.  We play an integral role in the district’s efforts to close the achievement gap by supporting the most fragile students and families.  Social Workers provide this support through our direct work with families and children; our consultation and collaboration with school staff and participation on school teams; and our outreach and connections with community agencies and organizations. Many of the district’s most fragile children come to school with significant barriers to learning and academic success.  Their families may lack basic resources such as housing, food, preventative medical/dental care or clothing.  Their parents may be preoccupied with issues such as domestic violence, extreme poverty, joblessness, mental health diagnoses, substance abuse concerns, or debilitating illness.  These families cannot focus on supporting their children’s academic success without access to resources to address their needs and concerns.  Social Workers in the district are uniquely qualified to address these issues with families and children.
