Trauma-Sensitive Vision Questions
How will taking this action:
- Deepen our shared understanding of how trauma impacts learning and why a school-wide approach is needed for creating a trauma-sensitive school?
- Help the school effectively support all students to feel safe physically, socially, emotionally and academically?
- Address students’ needs in holistic ways, taking into account their relationships, self-regulation, academic competence and physical and emotional well-being?
- Explicitly connect students to the school community and provide multiple opportunities for students to practice newly developing skills throughout the school?
- Support staff’s capacity to work together as a team with a sense of shared responsibility for every student?
- Help the school anticipate and adapt to the ever-changing needs of our students and the surrounding community?
