The School Safety & Behavioral Health Team’s purpose is facilitating access to resources and building capacity to support the safety, well-being, and behavioral health of the students and staff in our districts. We are focused on helping districts develop, adapt and sustain equitable systems to better meet the social, emotional and behavioral (SEB) health needs of students, staff and families. This includes:
- Trauma-Informed Approaches
- Social Emotional Learning (SEL)
- Multi-Tiered Systems of Support (MTSS)
- School-based Mental Health
- Behavioral Safety Assessment & Crisis Response
- Suicide Prevention, Intervention & Postvention
- Educator Well-being
This web page provides access to additional resources, tools, services and information related to all areas of social, emotional and behavioral health.
