Trauma Sensitive Schools (TSS) Work Group

Purpose of the Group: This work group will learn and identify implementation strategies at individual schools. (Pending approval of TSS Department of Public Instruction application). 
 
TSS Vision Statement Draft (11/14/18): All children are capable of learning and growing within a school environment that is positive and supportive of their efforts. To foster this growth, it is important to understand that children bring different experiences to school that can impact on their academic, social, and emotional development. It is everyone’s role to address these differences by making children feel safe, welcomed, and supported throughout the school day and by creating a learning environment that provides supports necessary to help them reach their fullest potential.
