South High Social Work Services

At South High, we have social workers serving all of our students and families. Please contact your social worker about social, emotional, behavioral or mental health concerns; basic needs; attendance and truancy concerns; crisis support; or other questions that may arise, especially regarding concerns that impact a student's success.

Social workers support student learning by:

  • helping students and families problem solve around personal and family concerns
  • facilitating mental health support at school
  • attendance and truancy intervention, monitoring and support
  • advocating for students and families in crisis
  • recommending and connecting students to a variety of community resources 
  • communicating with school staff, community providers and families
  • facilitating various support groups
  • supporting homeless and highly mobile students and families
  • supporting Special Education students
  • supporting pregnant and parenting students
