What SSW Tools is for?
SSW Tools helps school social workers and other school-based mental health professionals with:
Communicating what you do with administrators and stakeholders by tracking your work tasks and generating reports.
Advocating for your workload and role through showing how your time is spent, demonstrating the need for additional resources, or advocating for a better alignment of your role and assigned duties.
Reflecting on your practice by understanding how your time is spent and gain insight into changes you can make to become more efficient, effective and less overwhelmed.
What SSW Tools is NOT for?
SSW’s are busy people and we don’t want to waste your time, so here are a few things that SSW Tools is NOT designed for:
Storing sensitive student information in the form of session notes, progress notes, assessments, etc. While SSW Tools is fully encrypted, it is not HIPPA compliant.
Monitoring activities of SSW’s by administrators. SSW Tools was designed to be used by individual practitioners and not as a compliance or monitoring tool for administrators.
