Despite these calls for systemic and integrated practice and practice guidelines, the most recent national survey of school social work tasks indicated that most school social workers are delivering individual and group counseling services to a specific population (students with special education labels under IEPs), and crisis intervention. Consequently, most school social workers appear to be devoting little of their time to prevention programming or other examples of systemic work due to their high caseloads of students with previously identified special education needs or ever-increasing crisis intervention needs. The Illinois survey project presented in this chapter found that even after twelve years, Allen-Meares’ findings are still accurate in describing the majority of school social work practice choices in Illinois. This survey data is consistent with other recent state and national studies of school social work practice.
