School Social Worker Mary Clare Roberts is now serving the Cooperstown Central School District full-time. Social worker services had previously been shared with Laurens Central School. But for this year, Roberts is in the district every day.
Roberts is based in the Jr./Sr. High School and serves students in seventh through 12th grades. As a member of the Counseling staff, she works in connection with administrators, counselors and teachers to support the emotional, social, and behavioral functioning of students.
The school social worker also helps plan and implement classroom lessons school-wide programs that support topics such as character education, personal safety, mental health and healthy relationships. The change was approved as part of the 2017-18 budget passed by voters last May.
