Social Work Support Groups

These groups are need-based support groups. When there are enough interested students we will run a group. These groups will meet weekly during rotating periods so students should only miss one class per quarter. Students joining these groups are responsible for making up work from the class they missed. All students attending a support group will be administratively excused for that period. Dates and times for groups will be determined each school year.
