School Social Work/ Truancy
Attention Parents and Guardians:
Effective July 1, 2017 Pennsylvania has new Attendance/ Truancy Regulations.
The position of School Social Worker is a varied and diverse role at AGSD. Our School Social Worker is part of the team who ensures the safety and well being of our student population. In this role, our School Social Worker oversees our truancy prevention efforts. Additionally, this position assists in working with some of our struggling students through group sessions and individual sessions. Our School Social Worker is also a PA certified Home and School Visitor under which role she completes home visits to check on the safety and wellbeing of our students. Home visits may also occur when a student has persistent attendance concerns. In order to fully benefit from a quality education, students need to have regular school attendance.
