When starting a new job many places of employment have new employee orientation. During this process many employers educate the new employee on the background of the company or organization, policies and procedures, what their job entails and the employers expectations of the new social work employee. However, currently in the Mankato School District 77 there is no orientation specific for incoming school social workers or interns to help guide them in their job. This would also benefit MSW practicum students as they enter the school district. Also, when the social worker or intern starts with District 77 they do not have any suggested curriculum to utilize and have to find their own material to use. Providing suggested evidence based curriculum for the social worker or intern to utilize will make their jobs easier. It will also allow them to utilize material that has been researched and proven to be beneficial to the student population they are working with.
