Our Mission Statement

Our mission is to promote the educational and professional growth of members to ensure that the highest standards of practice are upheld. We advocate for our members, schools, and students to impact legislation that will improve the delivery of school social work services and enhance the education of all children.



CASSW was organized over 35 years ago to promote the professional growth and effectiveness of school social work in Connecticut and to support school social workers throughout the state. Share with us any ideas or suggestions that will continue to better inform all school social workers. CASSW is alive and well and continues its commitment to support you in the wonderful work that you do on behalf of Connecticut's children. The CASSW Board of Directors meets monthly and welcomes attendance of members and those seeking to become more involved.
