This NACTATR resource has been developed for education departments, school district leaders and school administrators to support teachers, social workers, psychologists, counsellors, and other school staff responsible for educational support during the COVID-19 pandemic. Many of our students of concern (SOC) are already struggling emotionally-behaviorally, and some will be at further risk because of intensified family dynamics during the quarantine period. As teachers and other school staff work to stay connected with students, it is essential to apply a trauma-informed approach to guide administrative decisions.
