Centerstone School Based Services

Social Worker (Entry level CSW)

School-Based Services provides therapy services at schools in Jefferson, Spencer, and Bullitt Counties.   Services include individual, family, group and collaterals.   Therapists build their own caseloads through referrals from the school, complete psychosocial evaluations, and document services via an electronic health record (Avatar).   Services are delivered at the schools themselves with less frequent services at outpatient sites, daycares, and home visits as needed (these later sites used more in June and August when school is not in session as explained further below). 

SBS employees are 10/12th employees meaning that they work roughly 10 out of 12 months to match the school schedule.   10/12th employees are off any day that class is not in session (including inclement weather) with the exception of June and August when we provide services at other sites as listed above.   All of July is off.   Because employees work 10/12ths of the year, salary accordingly is 83% (10/12ths) of a full-time salary.   Salary is equally dispersed through the year every 2 weeks to help with budgeting.  The benefit of the 10/12th schedule  is having lots of extra time off during the year—there is hardly a month without at least one 3-day weekend (please see the JCPS 2018-19 calendar for details of schools days for next academic year). 

Minimum productivity is 50% direct time with incentives for meeting 60% productivity (that is just 4:45 of services out of an 8-hour work day/6-hour school day).   A caseload of around 35 is typical for a comprehensive school and 20 for an alternative school such as Waller.  Board approved supervision is provided both in individual and group formats.   Each August, SBS has a group training to help staff obtain CEUs.   August 2018 our training is providing 17 CEUs for example on topics ranging from PTSD to using DBT with school-aged clients. 

Therapists successful with SBS are independent, well-organized, motivated, and thrive on the fast-paced environment of the schools. Having your CSW approved and posted on the Board website is a must before applying.


Under moderate supervision, provides clinical services to assigned client populations, including administration of a variety of therapy techniques and programs.

Under board approved LCSW supervision, the social worker will follow the Kentucky Board of Social Work mandates as it pertains to face-to-face clinical supervision.


  1. Performs clinical services, including intakes and a variety of therapy programs and techniques such as group, individual, and family therapy, expressive therapy, crisis intervention, psychodrama and modeling.
  2. Maintains and completes service documentation such as psychosocial assessments, case notes, case reviews, court reports, letters, etc.
  3. Conducts case reviews and determines current and future treatment and treatment planning based upon resulting quantitative results and professional opinion of client progress.
  4. Collaborates with external agents including CHR, school officials, family members, and other health agencies regarding organizational programs and client needs and conditions.
