Do your students from trauma need practical, school-wide solutions?
For Title 1 Schools:
Do you know that your students have a lot of trauma in their lives but you need a systematic way to address that student trauma?
Are truancy rates too high?
Are suspension rates too high?
Do some students spend more time in the office than in class?
Are behaviors out of control?
Do student/ teacher relationships need improvement overall?
Are some students not making any academic progress?
For High-Achieving, High-Income Area Schools:
Do you have a problem with bullying?
Are drugs and alcohol an issue for students?
Do you have parents who are too involved or not involved enough in students’ well-being?
Are students being tutored to pass in key classes that otherwise many would fail?
Are too-large numbers of students being treated for anxiety or depression?
And how to get your staff on board?
Did you inherit a divided or divisive staff?
Have you brought your passion, your compassion, and your best motivating face to staff interaction (IE: you’ve been Leading Like a Pirate) and yet there are big issues that still need to be addressed in your school….and even with all your work on relationships, you are dreading those conversations?
Do you want to make real change at your school, but getting every staff member to work together to implement any program feels impossible?
Do teachers regularly have “meeting after the meeting” sessions?
