CHCCS Celebrates School Social Workers

Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools is pleased to honor our school social workers during this National School Social Workers Week (March 1-7).

School social workers play an important role in the education of the whole child, and our district could not properly function without their diligent commitment to student success. School social workers work to eliminate unnecessary barriers, and to establish working relationships with families and community resources. They are equipped to focus on the non-academic factors (those outside the classroom) that influence student learning. They assist with mental health services, crisis intervention, student attendance, and improving the overall learning climate. In short, school social workers lend the critical support needed to help students reach their full potential.

One example of their work includes the great strides our district has made in the past few months in the movement to prevent child sexual abuse. Ten CHCCS school social workers are being trained as Authorized Facilitators of the YMCA’s Stewards of Children program.

Please join us in thanking our school social workers for their important work!

Dr. Forcella's Perspective on the State's New School Grading System

Later this week, we expect to see significant media coverage of a new school grading system devised by our state legislature. It has led to considerable controversy due, in large part, to the way the scores are calculated (performance versus growth).

The February 1 edition of the Chapel Hill News included Superintendent Tom Forcella's monthly column. By clicking this link, you can read his thoughts on the matter.
