We were established in 1973 by a group of school social workers and their clients in the educational arena.
Our state association is part of the Midwest School Social Work Council, an eleven state regional organization that works to promote best practice and support social work in education.
KSSWA has a voice in developing policy at the state level, as well as regionally and nationally through our association with the Midwest School Social Work Council and the School Social Work Association of America.
KSSWA's executive board meets four times a year, and we hold a general membership meeting annually.
