School social work is in a state of flux. Traditional casework services in the schools, as the only function of the school social worker, is becoming less viable.
The study of Assumption school and area points out some problem areas, as well as strengths. In view of these problems and strengths, a broadened school social work program is discussed. The program centers around prevention, treatment, and research. A basic principle upon which all is based is a team approach of social work, school, and community. The discussion leads to the community school concept, which is currently seen as one of the more viable approaches to alleviating social problems.
