MCSD School Social Work Department

MCSD School Social Work Department

School Social Workers serve within the school district in order to help students achieve academic success by serving as a link between schools and home.   School Social Workers visit assigned school to build relationships with the students and school staff, and they make home visits and telephone communication regularly with parents to offer support and resources.  School Social Workers strive to alleviate barriers that get in the way of a child’s opportunity for education and success.  School Social Workers collaborate with many agencies within Muscogee County to support our students, families, and community as a whole.
