Joe Social Worker

Jose Oscar Ramos III, MSSW, LBSW

Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year and the PHS social work page. I am excited about all that this new school year has to offer and look forward to working with our students and families as we focus on continuous improvement in learning, and building connections with students/families.  We come back this school year with a renewed sense of commitment towards student growth, learning and fostering a school environment of trusted communication between our campus and your home. As campus social worker, I am committed to serving as a link between school and home, and to support and guide our students in becoming college, career and life ready. Please take time to explore this page where you will find resources regarding your rights as a parent/guardian under “Every Student Succeeds Act-Section 1116, mental health, prevention/intervention on suicide, health/wellness, tobacco/vaping, emergency resources in the Rio Grande Valley and homeless education resources. Remember that at Palmview High School “YOU MATTER”!
