A school social worker is authorized to provide social work services to prekindergarten through grade 12 students in a school setting. Board of Teaching school social worker licensure is not authorization to practice as a social worker in a school setting without current Board of Social Work licensure to practice as a social worker.
A candidate for licensure as a school social worker shall:
hold a baccalaureate or master's degree in social work from a program accredited by the Council on Social Work Education; and
be currently licensed in Minnesota to practice as a social worker under the Board of Social Work.
[Repealed, 25 SR 805]
A professional license shall be renewed according to the rules of the Board of Teaching governing professional licensure. Evidence of current Board of Social Work licensure is also required.
In order to retain licensure as a school social worker, current Minnesota Board of Social Work licensure must be maintained at all times. Lapse of Board of Social Work licensure is grounds for revocation of the school social worker license.
Requirements in this part for licensure as a school social worker are effective on September 1, 2001, and thereafter.
