  • The Role of School Social Workers and Sex Education: From Policy Advocacy
           to Direct Practice
    • Authors: Villarreal Sosa L.
      Pages: 75 - 78
      Abstract: Texas, a state in which 80 percent of schools use an abstinence-based approach to sex education, is facing controversy due to Austin’s Independent School District (AISD) voting to update the sex education curriculum for eight- to 14-year-olds (“Austin Has Changed Sex Education,” 2020). The evidence suggests that an abstinence-based approach does not work. Texas is fifth across the nation for the highest rate of teenage births and is first for the highest rate of repeat teenage births (Texas Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy, 2016). This curriculum for younger children includes naming body parts and teaching that some are private, in an effort to prevent sexual abuse. For older children, the curriculum includes disease prevention; contraception use; sexual identity; lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) relations; and consent. This is an important statement by the AISD about the need for more holistic approaches to sex education and the role of schools in promoting gender equity and inclusive schools for LGBTQ youths.

  • Evaluation of an Urban School-Based Social, Emotional, and Behavioral
           Health Professional Development and Consultation Model
    • Authors: Kaye A; Pejic V, Jordan M, et al.
      Pages: 79 - 87
      Abstract: Social, emotional, and behavioral health challenges pose significant barriers to students’ academic success, yet teachers report that they do not feel equipped with the knowledge and skills needed to address these challenges in their classrooms. This article presents findings associated with the effectiveness of an innovative school-based behavioral health professional development and consultation model designed to address this need for urban educators. Program evaluation results from school-based team members from five pilot schools over a two-year partnership period indicate that this model is highly used and valued by school staff, as well as perceived by school staff as effective in building the knowledge, skills, and self-efficacy to implement strategies and build systems in schools to address students’ social, emotional, and behavioral health needs. Progress monitoring data suggests that this learning is translating to actual systemic change in schools based on school-based team members’ reports of progress toward goals specific to the behavioral health systems, procedures, and protocols at their schools. The findings highlight the implications for school-based consultants and practitioners based on the promise of this model.

  • Restorative Practices for Empowerment: A Social Work Lens
    • Authors: Lustick H; Norton C, Lopez S, et al.
      Pages: 89 - 97
      Abstract: Studies demonstrate that preventive practices, including restorative practices and social and emotional learning, reduce the need for suspension. However, emerging findings suggest that preventive practices perpetuate the same rates of racial disproportionality in suspension as traditional disciplinary codes; evidence of persistent racial disproportionality appears in research on restorative practices. The purpose of this study was to examine, through interviews with teachers and students, the successes and challenges of implementing community-building circles with attention to equity and inclusion.
      Authors found that both teachers and students experience these practices as transformative when enough trust is established to share openly; however, more training is necessary for this to be consistent across schools and classrooms. Considering the lack of discussion of implicit bias and cultural responsiveness embedded in the restorative practice trainings these teachers received, authors argue that social work professionals and concepts—namely, empowerment theory—can support teacher training and implementation of community-building circles.

  • Education, Training, Case, and Cause: A Descriptive Study of School Social
           Work
    • Authors: Forenza B; Eckhardt B.
      Pages: 99 - 109
      Abstract: School social workers (SSWs) play a vital role in district-level education, but ambiguity within our collective understanding of school social work is a pervasive problem. Clarity of the SSW role is important for communities of place (schools), practice (SSWs), and circumstance (consumers of school social work). This research recruited and surveyed 52 SSWs in a focal state to contextualize their practice domains and professional capacity. Findings broadly pertain to the actual and idealized education and training of SSWs, as well as their case-level and cause/system-level job functions. The article concludes with a discussion of the implications for policy, practice, and future research.

  • Influencing Social and Emotional Awareness and Empathy with a Visual Arts
           and Music Intervention for Adolescents
    • Authors: Mogro-Wilson C; Tredinnick L.
      Pages: 111 - 119
      Abstract: Art and music create a powerful presence in the lives of youths. Skills gained from participating in the arts can better facilitate social and emotional learning (SEL) such as improving goal setting, increasing empathy, building relationships, and improving decision making. Connect with Kids, an SEL program that focuses on social and emotional skill building through the use of visual arts and music, was implemented in an urban high school in the Northeast. A total of 304 high school students participated in the study. Students from eight classrooms received the intervention (n = 143); students from another 10 classrooms (n = 161) comprised the comparison group and did not receive the intervention. The average youth was 14 years old, white, and female. Results indicated that the Connect with Kids program increased positive social and emotional behaviors among students compared with the comparison group. Examining the implications of the intervention advances gaps in the literature on SEL programs, supports integrating SEL programming on music and art in schools, and promotes continued program evaluation of unique SEL programming specifically for high school students.

           Learning Program

      Abstract: Research has indicated that social and emotional learning (SEL) programs can offer benefits to students and school environments. However, students’ experiences of participation in such programs have not received as much attention. This focus group study describes elementary students’ (N = 23) experiences of and beliefs about participation in a school-based SEL program commonly used in Sweden, Life Skills Training. The results suggest questionable acceptability of the program by the students, indicating a clear belief that the school’s implementation of the program was due to their problematic behavior. Although students experienced the program content as predictable, consistent, and structured, there was great variation in their attitudes toward the program: Both strong negative and positive attitudes were revealed. The students also expressed discomfort with the personal nature of the discussions promoted by the program and uncertainty about its place in the school setting. These findings can inform SEL program implementation.

  • Addressing Chronic Absenteeism in Middle School: A Cost-Effective Approach
    • Authors: Young S; Connolly Sollose L, Carey J.
      Pages: 131 - 138
      Abstract: Improving school attendance is a major concern for many schools nationwide. School social workers, along with other pupil personnel service (PPS) staff such as school psychologists and school counselors, play an integral role in supporting students who demonstrate chronic absenteeism. To effectively assist these students in improving school attendance, the school social worker at an urban middle school in Connecticut collaboratively developed the Perfect Attendance Wins Stuff (PAWS) program. The multilevel approach of the PAWS program included students, parents and guardians, school staff, and community providers to ensure that students achieve consistent daily school attendance, thus enhancing their ability to benefit from their education. The program began with a careful examination of attendance data, identifying students who were not meeting the state attendance benchmark. The PPS team used the data to identify not just the attendance rate, but patterns of absences, which helped to identify students with chronic attendance problems. Chang, Russell-Tucker, and Sullivan (2016) warned that a seemingly high attendance rate can mask a chronic absence problem that exists in a small percentage of the school population.
