for administrators and Supervisors
The School Social Work Association of America (SSWAA) has a network of experienced speakers and trainers who can provide large-group professional development and consultation services for districts or states. SSWAA serves as a hub to provide district leaders and state departments of education access to professional development and consultation options. We look forward to tailoring Professional Development Training to meet the specific needs of your school district or organization.
Who are school social workers
School Social Workers provide a focused reach to support all students specifically in areas of social- emotional learning and mental health needs, and are uniquely trained to integrate the school, community, and family context into interventions and resource referrals. School social work interventions reduce barriers to learning enabling students to be physically, mentally, and emotionally present and ready to learn in the classrooms.
School Social Work Program Development Toolkit
The School Social Work Program Development toolkit is designed to provide administrators and supervisors with useful tools to both inform the development of new School Social Work programs and to enhance/advance existing School Social Work programs. These tools will help to ensure adherence to standards of School Social Work practice as defined both by the School Social Work Association of America (SSWAA) and the National Association of Social Workers (NASW).

The School Social Work Association of America (SSWAA) proudly promotes National School Social Work Week. SSWAA collects and shares resources to help you celebrate and promote School Social Work Week. We hope you will make some great plans to celebrate the vital role of your school social workers.
