This document comprises the Kansas state standards and guidelines for school social work. School social work is defined as special services which provide: (1) a liaison between home, school, and community to prevent problems in learning and promote quality education; (2) consultation to teachers or other school staff in understanding the cultural and social factors related to a child's performance in school; (3) coordination between the school and other community agencies to mobilize resources to enable the child to profit from the educational experience; and (4) assistance through group and individual counseling with the child and family to affect the child's adjustment in school. Topics discussed thereafter include: scope of services; responsibilities of the school social worker; student/social worker ratio; supervision of school social work; training and certification; social work paraprofessionals; approval of social work paraprofessionals; and reimbursement.
