KENANSVILLE, NORTH CAROLINA- March 8, 2019- Duplin County Schools, along with school systems across the nation join with the School Social Work Association of America (SSWAA) to celebrate National School Social Work Week.
DCS school social workers are an important link between students, families and schools. They help insure all students’ basic needs are met. School social workers help improve school climate and culture through building relationships with students and their families. They advocate strongly for the well-being of all students and do their very best in providing the services and the support students and families need.
“Our social workers are important links for our students to other agencies and supports that help insure our students are at their best,” explains Assistant Superintendent for Federal Programs, Student Support Services, and Athletics Dr. Ben Thigpen. “Social workers are concerned with our student’s physical, social, mental and emotional health and their efforts assist our teachers and administrators in providing the best education for every child every day.”
“Our social workers, under the leadership of Dr. Thigpen and through collaboration with other support staff, help provide effective support for students and families,” states Superintendent Dr. Austin Obasohan. “On behalf of our Board of Education, I want to thank all of our social workers for their dedication to our mission.”
