Louisiana State Dept. of Education, Baton Rouge. Div. of Academic Programs.
This handbook describes the Program of Child Welfare and Attendance and School Social Work Services in the state of Louisiana. The first section provides a brief history of services in Louisiana and a description of the program, including its philosophy and objectives, the identification and interpretation of roles and functions of child welfare, school attendance issues, and the role of school social work personnel. Due process for students is explained along with court cases and decisions. Part Two of the handbook focuses on procedures, directions, and forms for collecting and reporting data. An administrator's guide to the Buckley Amendment, which granted parents and students the right to review student records, is provided and sample forms maintained by supervisors of child welfare and attendance are given. Part Three contains evaluative forms and procedures and discusses certification requirements for supervisors of child welfare and attendance and/or visiting teachers. The appendix contains the specific laws affecting child welfare, attendance, and adjustment, and opinions of the attorney general. This handbook may be used as a legal reference guide for school professionals and, although geographically specific, could serve as a model for other education programs. (NRB)
