Supports for Students Experiencing Acute Trauma

A Framework and Resources for Measuring Student Needs and Development During Remote and Blended Learning​

In this time of crisis, record numbers of children are experiencing housing instability, food insecurity, economic insecurity, family illness and death, and other forms of acute trauma. Knowing which students need assistance allows teachers and schools to respond, and aggregating that information allows districts and the State to distribute resources effectively and advocate for additional resources if necessary.

The home visit has been an eye-opening experience. I don’t know that it has helped with engagement as much as we hoped, but at least the students know that someone cares and will follow up with them. It is more a of a welfare check in many of our situations.
