Comprehensive System of Learning Supports

Equal attention to Learning Supports is essential so that:
  • Every student will demonstrate academic achievement and be prepared for success after high school;
  • Every student will be supported by highly prepared and effective teachers and school leaders; and
  • Every school will offer a safe and healthy learning environment for all students.

Crisis Intervention

School-based crisis intervention refers to the responses a school can plan and implement when crisis events (e.g., natural disaster, students experiencing or witnessing violence, death of a student or school personnel) occur.  Emotional responses of students and staff will vary but if schools do not have adequate intervention plans, intervene in a timely manner, and evaluate and modify plans accordingly, these events can create significant barriers to learning and lead to lasting psychological and academic problems.
