    Abstract

    As Dade County Public Schools began expanding their system of school-linked services they entered into a collaborative partnership with Barry University's School of Social Work to develop, implement, and evaluate programmes. Describes the multidimensional evaluation of a project located in an inner-city elementary school with a student body made up primarily of Haitian immigrants. Qualitative results revealed the value of social workers as mediators between home and school and the effect of culture and immigration on attachment to school. (Original abstract - amended)
