Social Workers Information

The Social Workers at Stevenson High School provide support for students to help positively impact their day-to-day educational experience.

Some of the ways we provide support for students include:

  • Individual and group counseling

  • Suicide and crisis assessments

  • Consulting with teachers and educational staff

  • Advocating for student needs

  • Connecting students with outside resources

  • Participating in the evaluation process for determining eligibility for special education services

  • Providing classroom presentations about mental health and other social/emotional topics

  • Assisting with financial support for families in need

  • Student Support Team interventions and consultation.

Each student is assigned to a Student Support Team (SST) that consists of a social worker, counselor, dean and psychologist. These individuals act as a student’s go-to resources for a variety of issues that may come up during the school day.
