Mission


The mission of school social workers is to promote and support healthy development in all children to attain their maximum potential and benefit from the education afforded them in Connecticut’s schools. Using an ecological perspective, school social workers foster social-emotional competencies and academic achievement by assisting students, families, schools and communities in identifying and addressing barriers to learning and helping students realize their full potential. Ecological theory in social work practice combines biological and psychosocial perspectives to explore the connection between people and their environment.
