You will be required to pass the content area test for social work prior to entering your last semester of study. Students should apply for the Professional Educators License with a school social work endorsement in their last semester through the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE), allowing them to obtain employement as a School Social Worker.
In this School Social Work role at Illinois State University, social workers will assist in assessing grade school, middle school, and/or high school children's needs, especially if the children are showing deficits in learning. Once those needs are clearly identified, the worker will collaboratively develop individualized education plans (IEPs) to meet these needs, and in most cases, will work with the students and his/her teachers and family members to make the student's educational experience more successful.
