What is School Social Work?
kids

There is a school social worker in each of the Minneapolis Public Schools. All students are eligible to receive our services. We work with parents, students, staff and community agencies to identify student needs that interfere with learning in order to support students in the educational environment.

Please contact your school social worker if you have questions or would like to talk about any of the following:

  • School Attendance
  • Community Resources
  • Assistance with basic needs (clothing, food)
  • Concerns about your student’s learning
  • Behavioral support/intervention ideas
  • Special Education/Disability Services
  • Special Education Transportation
  • Safety issues/concerns
  • Social/Emotional/Mental Health Needs
  • Social Skills Development
  • Peer Relationships/Friendships
  • Family events or changes that may be affecting your child
  • Homeless and Highly Mobile Status/Resources

We are happy to support you and your child in their school success!
