About Social Work

  • School Social Workers are committed to enhancing the social-emotional growth and academic outcomes of all students.
  • We envision school social work as a valued, integral part of the education of all children, connecting schools, families and communities.
  • Social work services is a specialization which applies social work principles and methodologies to educational environments with the primary goal of removing any barriers that prevent a student from fulfilling his or her academic potential. Social workers are assigned to every school and center in the school system. Most social workers serve two to three sites.
  • Participating in the special education screening and eligibility process is the primary role responsibility for school social workers serving in general education settings. This includes participating in student-centered meetings, interviewing parents to complete socio-emotional assessments and serving as a member of the school's special education team, to identify students with disabilities. Social workers in general education settings also provide crisis intervention, behavioral consultation and some limited individual and group counseling and parent groups. Social workers in special education centers and programs participate in the re-evaluations process and deliver ongoing direct and indirect services, which include individual, group and family counseling. All social workers serve as liaisons between home, school and community.


Hey Kennedy Parents!

This is Lucia with YDI, letting you know that the YDI Dream Big Program will continue to provide services at Kennedy this school year! Dream Big is a city funded program offered only at Kennedy. We provide individual and group therapy at school as well as case management support services.

Our focus is on students struggling with behaviors at school or home, substance use, mood related problems, coping with stress and peer pressure, and many other issues teens face. This year we are excited to announce that we will also be offering a 6th grade only group to provide additional support for 6th grade students transitioning into middle school.

We are currently taking referrals for services for the upcoming year. Please call us at 505-203-3911 for more information about what do here at Kennedy or to make a referral for your student!

We look forward to a great school year with you!
