Appalachia | October 20, 2022 - October 21, 2022
Location: Green Bay, Wisconsin
Description: During this session at the National Rural Education Association (NREA) 2022 National Forum to Advance Rural Education, Regional Educational Laboratory (REL) Appalachia staff shared resources and strategies to help educators, school administrators, district and state leaders, and relevant community organization representatives support students and educators experiencing trauma, including trauma associated with COVID-19, social and racial injustice, and natural disasters. Participants learned about available resources, participated in an interactive group discussion, and left the session ready to identify and implement evidence-based strategies to promote inclusive and equitable delivery of trauma-sensitive services and supports. Implementing such strategies can increase the likelihood of positive outcomes for all students and educators.
