School social workers have specialized training in group, family and individual counseling. They use their training to identify factors that can make school a more successful experience for students with disabilities. School social workers diagnose problems, arrange for services, counsel children in trouble and help integrate students with disabilities into the general education setting. In addition, they address problems such as misbehavior in class, socialization, learning difficulties and developmental delays.

School Social Workers also complete Social Developmental studies, attend eligibility and IEP meetings, provide consultative services to school staff, and act as a liaison between parents, schools and outside agencies. They also conduct groups to enhance social skills, motivation, and self-esteem.

SESE assigns a school social worker to work in each district in the cooperative area. In addition to the services listed above, school social workers provide insights into how children develop socially and provide much needed assistance to the students served by SESE.


Applicants must hold a Professional Educator License with an Endorsement in School Social Work.


Salary is determined by the Collective Bargaining Agreement.
