  • Thank You Community, for your participation in our Community Forum Series. We invite you to continue the dialogue via Let's Talk!

    In Nyack Schools, we are interested in continuing a community-wide, collaborative conversation of what it takes to ensure that all students succeed and how to measure that success in our ever-changing, complex world.

    With Let's Talk! , we respond promptly and directly to your concerns, questions, suggestions and comments when you provide us with your contact information and the dialogue is continued.   If you choose, submissions can also be anonymous.  Please see the attached flyer with specific instructions for how to use Let's Talk!

    Whether you are a student, parent, staff or community member, we are listening and hope to hear from you!


Social Work Services

The role of the social worker is varied and diverse.  Services include: providing counseling and emotional support for students, assisting students with developing appropriate conflict resolution, social skills and appropriate peer interactions.  The social worker supports teachers by observing students in the classroom setting and offering suggestions on how best to provide for the student. The social worker is an integral member of each building level Instructional Support Team and Crisis Intervention Team. In addition, the social worker serves as the liaison between the school and community agencies to provide outside supports for students and their families.
