Effective School Staffing Model:  Teaming School Counselors, School Psychologists, and School Social Workers-- Joint Statement

The American School Counselor Association (ASCA), the National Association of School Psychologists (NASP), and the School Social Work Association of America (SSWAA) endorse an Interdisciplinary Teaming Approach to SISP staffing that involves School Social Workers, School Psychologists and School Counselors.  Working together, we are stronger than we are if we work in isolation or in competition with our mental health related partners in support of all students.  The national organizations collectively will continue to promote the unique roles of school counselors, school psychologists, and school social workers and will support state and local affiliate efforts toward appropriate hiring models that recognize the role and importance of each of these professionals.

COMMON CORE STANDARDS

A Parent's Guide to Common Core Standards.     Resources and articles provided by Education.com

Core Standards   "The Common Core State Standards Initiative is a state-led effort coordinated by the National Governors Association Center for Best Practices (NGA Center) and the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO). The standards were developed in collaboration with teachers, school administrators, and experts, to provide a clear and consistent framework to prepare our children for college and the workforce."  www.corestandards.org

Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO)  www.ccsso.org/

Common Core Standards Will Benefit At-Risk Students:  A School Social Worker's Perspective:   "As part of the school team, school social workers share the goal of ensuring that all students receive a quality education." "The Common Core State Standards will create an educational environment in the United States that is more accessible for students and understandable for parents. Consistency as well as more opportunities and tools for greater collaboration among students, parents, and educators will enhance education for all students and remove barriers for parents and students. As such, school social workers see the Common Core State Standards promise many new opportunities and tools for addressing learning for every student. "  Source:  Blog article posted on  The Whole Child Website by School Social Worker Elizabeth Pfiffner   

National PTA Guides to Individual States Implementation Plans and Guidelines  Each state is developing its own timeline and plans to implement the Common Core State Standards over the next few years. This site provides links to your state's education agency to find out more about your state’s plans to adopt or implement the standards.

DATING VIOLENCE

1 is 2 Many Initiative   "Despite the significant progress made in reducing violence against women, there is still a long way to go. Young women still face the highest rates of dating violence and sexual assault. In the last year, one in 10 teens have reported being physically hurt on purpose by a boyfriend or girlfriend. One in five young women have been sexually assaulted while they’re in college.  In response to these alarming statistics, Vice President Biden is focusing his longstanding commitment to reducing violence against women specifically on teens and young women ages 16-24."   Because even one incident is too many, in September 2011, the Vice President launched the 1is2many initiative.  1is2many uses technology and outreach to get the message and resources out and to help reduce dating violence and sexual assault among teens and young adults.

Is Domestic Violence a Bigger Problem Than We Realize? (Infographic) Domestic violence doesn't discriminate. It can affect women, men & children with no bias of age, fame or wealth. 2014 was filled with reports of incidents involving important figures in sports, government, and more. This media attention has placed a much-needed spotlight on this incredibly important cause – one that as a school social worker we are profoundly aware of.  Some people do not understand that there are many different acts categorized as domestic violence. The categories range from the commonly known physical abuse and emotional intimidation, to less known forms such as isolation or economic control. See the startling statistics on domestic violence in this latest infographic from the University of New England Online Social Work Program, a past SSWAA Gold Sponsor.
