    I have found that it is important that I make the call to social services personally. Some schools want only the guidance counselor or other designee to contact social services. This results in delay, incomplete or inaccurate details, or even a call not being made because the counselor decided it didn't merit a call. (I have seen it happen.)
     My job is to report my observations and concerns. It is the job of social services to determine the necessary action.
