The DOE awarded Westat Inc a $6.5 million dollar grant to establish the National Technical Assistance Center to Improve State Capacity to Accurately Collect and Report IDEA Data.

    My name is Kathy Minnich and I am a doctoral candidate at Walden University. I am conducting research in partial fulfillment of my doctorate on the experiences of school social workers with empowerment and self-efficacy within the workplace. A vast number of studies have assessed these characteristics in the general population of social-work practitioners. However, school social workers represent a gap in existing related literature. This research will fill that gap by providing insight into the experiences of specifically school social workers that are related to empowerment and self-efficacy within the workplace.
    Acknowledging the value of your time, I would appreciate your consideration of participation in this important study. To fully understand your experience, a 1.5 to 2-hour interview would be conducted with you at a location of your choosing. Nothing uncomfortable will be required of you. The interview is designed to simply learn of your experiences surrounding empowerment and self-efficacy within the workplace. All information gathered during the interview will be held strictly confidential and you are free to discontinue participation at any time with no adverse repercussions.
    Please contact me at your earliest convenience to schedule a date and time for the study interview. My telephone number is (717) 577-0478. You can also email me at
    Thank you for your consideration.

    SSW & HSVs needed to participate in survey

    Homelessness is a problem that is very difficult to combat, partly because it is so hard to obtain accurate information about the homeless. We are sending this survey to a very wide range of professionals in order to learn more about who comes into contact with the homeless, under what circumstances, and what patterns they see. Even reporting that you do not come in contact with the homeless is helpful, so please consider participating regardless of your amount of involvement with this issue.  By participating you can help increase our understanding of and ability to combat this problem. Just click here to access the surveyPlease feel free to contact Heather S. Feldhaus, Ph.D. if you have any questions or would like to receive a copy of the report.
