Home and School Visitation
The Lower Merion School District believes that regular school attendance significantly effects student achievement and wellbeing. Student Services supports students' attendance and compliance with state requirements, through the involvement of a School Visitor/Social Worker (HSV/SSW). The HSV/SSW works with students and parents when school attendance is a concern. Support and interventions with students and families are developed and implemented and referrals are made to community resources to work with the family and student.
The HSV/SSW also supports students and families through her designation as the District's child abuse and neglect reporter to the Montgomery County Office of Children & Youth, the District's homeless liaison, residency investigator and liaison for the cultural exchange program.
