Timeline :: National Association of School Attendance Officers is formed


This Association has gone through many name changes since its inception as the School Attendance Officers' National Association in 1884. In 1930, it became the School Attendance and Investigation Officers' National Association; in 1940, the Education Welfare Officers' National Association; and in 1977 the National Association of Social Workers in Education. It works closely with with the National Association of Chief Education Welfare Officers and together they set up the joint National Development Committee for Social Work in Education.
