OSSWA signs on to support the Labor-HHS-Education 302b allocation

This year, we had just under 800 organizations join the Coalition for Health Funding, Committee for Education Funding, and the Campaign to Invest in America’s Workforce in calling for an increase in the 302b allocation for the Departments of Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education and Related Agencies appropriations bill. The letter has gone up to Capitol Hill now so please feel free to share.

Again, thank you for your support! We look forward to continuing to work with you to support this critical spending bill.

SSWAA Response to 13 Reasons Why

Many of you are aware of the series "13 Reasons Why" as there has been significant media attention related to the graphic content and serious issues depicted in this Netflix series. Districts across the country have sent letters to families regarding concerns and other professional associations have created position statements associated this show. Some SSWAA Board members watched the series and felt it was imperative to provide a School Social Work perspective. In addition, we also wanted to provide all of you with this resource to support your work.

If you have any questions or need further resources, please do not hesitate to reach out to your SSWAA Board Regional Representative.
