ASA has a full-time social worker on staff to support social & emotional wellness. The mission is to create a positive impact on student achievement by supporting the social, emotional, physical, and intellectual development of each child. Our social worker, along with caregivers, teachers, and staff members, identifies needs that might interfere with student learning and provides intervention to support the whole child’s growth.
Social Worker Roles
We are committed to supporting all students, including children and youth experiencing homelessness, to provide equal access to public education. We work diligently to ensure all students have everything they need, including food, transportation, and clothing. We want children enrolled and successful in school, no matter what their housing situation may be.
The McKinney-Vento Homeless Education Assistance Act defines educational rights and responsibilities to children and youth who are experiencing homelessness. Each state and local educational agency shall ensure that each educationally homeless child and youth have equal access to the same free, appropriate public education, including public preschool education, provided to housed children and youth. Further, homeless children and youth shall have immediate access to the curriculum and any supportive services needed to ensure that they have an opportunity to be successful in school.
