School Social Work History

School Social Work History | School Social Worker | Scoop.it

The mission of this site is simple.  It is to preserve the literature and history of the school social work field and to share it with practitioners, students, professors and historians.  Today we have internet resources that bring current resources to us in the matter of seconds.  The older resources are only in a print format and in order for them to saved they must be converted to an electronic format.  School social work is such a specialized field there are few resources to attempt such a project.  And even if the motivation and funding existed the documents are difficult if not impossible to find.  

 

Between the years 1973 and 1990 I made an effort to document the early writings from the school social work field.  The holy grail was to find the "Bulletins" of the National Association of School Social  Workers.  In order to complete my quest I visited countless university libraries.  I also communicated with school social workers who were members and officers of NASSW for help.  Some of these delightful retired school social workers shared their literature including many original copies of the Bulletins.  Other Bulletins were photocopied at libraries. The condition of the Bulletins and other early materials vary from poor to excellent.  The scanning process could not make up for poor quality of the photo copies. 

Steve Whitmore's insight:

This looks like an interesting website that gives you some perspective on our profession.

Medicaid Reimbursement- Oakland County Page

Medicaid Reimbursement- Oakland County Page | School Social Worker | Scoop.it

The goal of the Medicaid Billing Department is to administer the School Based Services Program for Oakland Schools and assist all districts in recovering as much of the cost of providing special education services to Medicaid eligible children as possible.

 

School Based Services is a program compromised of two components (1) Direct Service and (2) Administrative Outreach.  Oakland Schools participates in both of these programs.  Under Direct Service, Medicaid reimburses schools for health care services provided to Medicaid Eligible student in Special Education and/or Early On.  Under the Administrative Outreach Program, schools with staff who provide activities to assist the Michigan Department of Community Health (MDCH) in "finding" potential Medicaid eligible students, are reimbursed for the administrative costs associated with these activities. 

Steve Whitmore's insight:

Great reference pages.
