“Our dedicated staff will implement a trauma-informed, resilience-focused support system for students, families and staff to increase student engagement and learning through a two-pronged approach: First, school staff will attend professional development, establish tools for a positive culture and implement a social and emotional learning curriculum. Second, community outreach practices will focus on the home/school connection through positive interactions and communication. The project is strategically planned for a three year implementation. Creating supportive relationships with students and their families is at the heart of real change and the foundation for students to access and engage in learning.”
