2nd National School Social Work Survey Results
Share |

Dear School Social Work Colleagues:

We are providing you with some initial findings from the Second National School Social Work Survey. Many of you were involved in helping us, either by sharing the survey invitations with your state colleagues or in taking the survey yourself, and we thank you for all your support of our project.

The associated state reports are the results of the Second National School Social Work Survey. Data were collected from February 2014 through April 2014. The survey took approximately 15 minutes to complete and no incentives were provided to respondents. Although 3,769 participants began taking the survey, final analysis was completed using the 2,521 respondents who provided full responses. School social workers were recruited with the assistance of the School Social Work Association of America (SSWAA), the American Council of School Social Work (ACSSW), and the School Social Work Practice Section of the National Association of Social Workers (NASW). In addition, 33 state associations and relevant state department of education offices assisted with recruitment. Lastly, 23 social media outlets (i.e. Facebook and LinkedIn) devoted to school social work assisted.

The initial draft of the survey instrument was based on prior surveys and using items from similarly focused surveys to request information on school mental health practices. The survey instrument was then reviewed by an expert panel of 18 leading school social work researchers and practitioners, and each expert panelist provided feedback on survey items.

The results are being disseminated through peer-reviewed journals, conferences, and through local and national school social work organizations. These state reports were generated to facilitate discussion and planning at the state level. We hope they are useful.
