Your Voice Matters
Welcome to KSSWA's advocacy page! Here you can make a difference, because your voice matters for your students, for your school, and for your profession. Below you will find resources to help in your advocacy efforts. However the most impact we can have is if all School Social Workers join together with a unifying voice across the state. School Social Workers need to be the ones dictating what the profession is and can be. As School Social Workers we know and see the influence we can have on a student, family, and educational system. It is only with your support that we can advocate and grow this profession at the state level. Collectively our voice is powerful and can make change happen. So please join with us to create one collective voice for School Social Workers across the State of Kansas.
1. Advocate for the social, emotional, and educational well-being of children and families
2. Increase the profession of School Social Work in Kansas
