• Dually licensed by the Minnesota Board of Social Work and the Professional Educator Licensing and Standards Board, school social workers are mental health professionals and practitioners who bring a variety of skills and evidence-based practices to the school setting. This includes providing social work services and supports to students, families, and educational staff while bridging connections between home, school, and community to support students' academic, social, emotional and behavioral success at school.
