Through relationships with students, families, community, and Fresno Unified staff, the Department of Prevention and Intervention strives to reconnect with the humanity in education. We help to bridge gaps in opportunity through providing access to resources that promote the academic success and well-being of the "whole-child" and support the optimum conditions for learning in our schools.
School Social Workers (SSW's) function as part of a multidisciplinary team in addressing concerns presented in the school setting. The team may include administrators, school psychologist, school nurse, counselor, teacher, and other school personnel. School Social workers provide a variety of services to students and families in order to support students' academic and social success.
Professional services provided include:
Evidence–Based Educational, Behavioral, and Mental Health Service
School-based and community-based resources
