School Social Worker Resources

School Social Work Consultation Services

The school social work consultant at Oakland Schools provides guidance and technical assistance for Oakland County school social workers. Oakland Schools' assistance is designed to support school social workers in their ability to improve student achievement and engagement in order to close the performance gap of students with and without IEPs. 

A variety of supports are provided to school social workers by the school social worker consultant:

School Social Work MiPlace Community of Practice Page

The School Social Work Community of Practice MiPlace provides information and resources to school social workers regarding assessment, plan development, intervention, and community resource engagement. 

Within the Moodle, school social workers are able to utilize the Oakland County School Social Worker Directory and the discussion boards to network with other school social workers. 

More information coming soon.
