Dear Parents and Guardians.
It is my privilege to work with you and your children. As the district’s school social worker, my primary responsibility is to be a member of the Child Study Team. The Child Study Team is a multi-disciplinary team, which determines eligibility for special education and related services. I assist my co-workers by conducting a social history evaluation. The social history evaluation is an assessment of the developmental and psychosocial factors that may impact a child’s adjustment to and performance in school. I also serve as a Child Study Team case manager for students receiving special education services. As your child’s case manager, I am responsible for developing Individual Education Plans (IEP’s), facilitate communication between home and school, and coordinating annual reviews and triennial evaluations. I also provide school based counseling as well as assisting families to obtain access to appropriate community services.
I look forward to providing support and assistance to the residences of East Rutherford.
