School settings offer a wealth of opportunities for social workers to learn, practice, and enhance their social work knowledge and skills. Clinical practice in schools has generally focused on providing services to individual students related to behavioral, social, and academic issues, often involving collaboration with parents, caregivers, and teaching staff. Clinical social work practice may also involve group sessions with students around behavioral and social interaction issues. Working with site-based decision-making teams, taking an active role in leadership activities, or engaging in school reform are areas that generally have not been attended to by social workers. This chapter looks at the role of social work in the context of school leadership and systemic reform through the involvement of one school reform program. Recommendations are offered to support those desiring to work in this manner.
