SOCIAL WORK SERVICES ARE AVAILABLE TO HELP
School Social Workers are available to students and families with various needs. These needs could include issues with school, home, the community, health concerns, and relationship issues. Each public school in Marion County has a School Social Worker and Social Work Assistant available for assistance. We are here to help students effectively utilize the educational opportunities available while maximizing potential for growth and learning.
The ways in which school social workers can assist students and their families are endless. For a student to be successful, regular and consistent attendance at school must be a priority. School social workers and social work assistants are available to assist with chronic absenteeism and help students and families addressing these issues. To further assist with absenteeism, the Truancy Intervention Partnership Program (TIPP) was developed.
This particular program is a co-operative effort between the Marion County Public School Board and the State Attorney’s Office to provide prevention and intervention to students and their families who are experiencing difficulties with regular school attendance. For additional information, please call 671-6870.
