Family School Support Workers

The Family School Support Workers work closely with the public schools in Carlton County.  We currently have FSSWs located in the Barnum, Carlton, Cloquet, and Wrenshall public schools.  Families need to have a child attending one of those schools in order to access the services of a Family School Support Worker.  The Family School Support Worker program is a family-focused, preventative service offered in Carlton County.  The program provides support to families and children within their home, school, and community.
