Charles City, Iowa -The Charles City Community school district is filling needs of their students by adding a social worker.
The board approved a joint agreement between the district and Waverly-Shell Rock to add a social worker to help alleviate current work load for school counselors.
Superintendent Mike Fisher says they specifically sought a social worker versus a counselor.
The social worker would be at the middle school.
Fisher says data collected from the entire district said those grades are where one is most needed.
