If your child has experienced grief from a loss, please contact your child’s school to learn more information about support services offered via the school and community resources that may be available. It is important to understand that children and adolescents experience a variety of emotions and may respond or cope with grief differently.
School Social Workers provide support, guidance, and encouragement to students who are teen parents or pregnant. The goals for the students are to remain in school and graduate with a high school diploma.
Social workers coordinate with guidance counselors and the school nurse to collaborate on individualized learning plans to address academic, health, emotional, and career goals in an effort to prevent teen mothers from dropping out of school.
Social Workers specifically provide case management services/resources to teen moms (ex. Medicaid, Parenting Classes, Community Agencies, etc.)
