Guidance Staff Assignments 2021-2022

School Social Workers

  • School Social Work is a specialized service for helping families and students experiencing social, emotional, learning and behavioral difficulties in the school setting.  These difficulties may be presented as poor academic achievement, lack of motivation, difficulty remaining focused on tasks and truancy.

    School social workers monitor student attendance and truancy cases, provide counseling to students and parents, serve as a liaison between school, family and community, serve as a source of information regarding community resources, and make referrals to agencies as needed.  At the high school level, Social Workers work closely with students to insure regular attendance and meet graduation requirements.

    Referrals to the Social Worker can be made via teachers, staff, parents or students themselves.  You can contact the Social Worker at McArthur, Sarah Lazarre, LCSW at 754-323-1228.
