The Indiana Department of Education (IDOE) invites all schools to celebrate School Social Work Week, March 1-7, 2020. Please join us in honoring these professionals who serve the needs of our Hoosier students.


School social work plays an integral role in supporting a healthy school climate, providing proactive services to assist students and teachers with techniques for positive engagement, responding to crisis situations, and acting as a liaison between the school, families, and the community. To celebrate school social workers and School Social Work Week, the IDOE asked to hear voices from the field. Check back every day, March 2–6, to hear from someone new about school social work and the impact it’s had on them, their students, and their school communities.
