The U.S. Department of Education is beginning a major initiative on how schools can support undocumented students and their families. They are hoping to roll out this initiative in early October. SSWAA staff has met with the Department to talk about the roles School Social Workers play with these students and families and some of the activities already underway.
Please help us by providing your experiences, model programs, materials and/or the names of students who may be willing to be "guest bloggers" for the Department..
This is a great opportunity to showcase the work of School Social Workers across the country, and we feel hopeful that School Social Workers will play a prominent role in the materials and information coming from the Department. Deadline: Friday, September 25.
