School Social Work. Pupil Personnel Services Recommended Practices and Procedures Manual Series.
Allen-Meares, Paula; Yeck, Dorothy
This manual, one of a series of five manuals written for pupil personnel workers in the Illinois schools, is designed to assist school personnel with practices and procedures in school social work. Chapter 1 focuses on philosophy, and briefly introduces major concepts in pupil personnel services including service coordination, community-school relationship, resource identification, needs assessment, and evaluation. A brief description of how to use the manual is also provided. Chapter 2 expands the material in chapter 1, discussing organization of services, needs assessment and implementation procedures, school social work administration and supervision (e.g., files, records, staff allocation, and supervision), and legislation. Chapter 3 discusses the delivery of services, program functions, relationships between school social workers and other school personnel, targets of services (students, parents, staff, community), models of service, and areas of emphasis. Chapter 4 focuses on planning for the future. The seven appendices include acknowledgements and references, a bibliography, a taxonomy of school social work tasks, sample forms, listings of professional journals and bulletins, and Illinois graduate schools of social work.
