Reclassify 2 Social Workers to Case Workers - Human Services Dept.
Submitted By: Tyner Little, Commissioners Court Admin
Department: Commissioners Court Admin  

Information
RECOMMENDATION
Discuss and consider the reclassification of two Social Worker positions to two Case Worker positions in the Department of Human Services.
BACKGROUND
The Department of Human Services has experienced some difficulty with recruitment for vacancies and retaining licensed Social Workers. The only accredited Social Work program in the area exists at Texas A&M University-Kingsville.
DISCUSSION
The Department of Human Services currently has two Social Worker vacancies and one more expected in August. This provides an opportune time to reclassify the positions to positions that do not specifically require a BSW degree and state licensure, but do require a degree in a behavioral or social science and two years’ experience in a related field.
