Day at the Hill
MSSWA hosts an annual Day at the Hill as an opportunity for school social workers to come together to educate state lawmakers about how we address student barriers to academic success in cost effective ways. MSSWA schedules personal meetings with your legislators and provides talking points to share with legislators. CEUs are awarded so this is a staff development opportunity, not a political lobby day. - Tuesday, March 5, 2018
