School social workers strive to provide services to the students, parents, school, and community in which they work. However, with a low school social worker-to-student ratio, it is hard to ensure that these services can be provided to students to help them be successful in the school environment, especially when considering attendance and grade point average (GPA). This study explored the outcomes of school social work services in improving students' attendance and GPA.
A secondary analysis was conducted from the records of Fairfax High School in the Los Angeles Unified School District. Thirty student records were randomly sampled. The results indicated a significant improvement for 11th graders in their attendance and GPA from the fall 2007 semester to the spring 2008 semester. Implications for social work practice, limitations of the study, and future recommendations for research are discussed.
