My name is Anne Gonzales, CASSW Regional Coordinator for the Central Valley, which covers the Fresno, Kern, Kings, Madera, Mariposa, Merced, and Tulare Counties.
I would like to welcome current members and invite prospective members to join in on our Google Group discussions and obtain the latest information about the variety of issues and concerns that impact our roles as school social workers and the diverse populations we serve in the educational setting.
Because CASSW is a volunteer association dedicated to supporting school social workers, providing practical training and time for meaningful collaboration is yielded. The Central Valley region has sponsored an annual workshop held in December, which provides a mixture of professional development and networking opportunities for our members and participants.
In addition to these opportunities, Central Valley CASSW has worked collaboratively with California State University, Fresno to bring together local field instructors to share information and highlight resources that may be useful to school sites and districts throughout the valley.
We look forward to having you join us and making this region a success!
