School Safety and Concerns
A resource we want to offer to boards to share with your Superintendent or administration is www.nasponline.org.
There you will find information regarding talking with children about violence, school safety and death should it be needed.
The Commission on Children has added a resource center to their website that you and the parents and teachers with whom you interact may find useful:
The Official Blog of the U.S. Department of Education - Resources for Schools to Prepare for and Recover from Crisis

The National Child Traumatic Stress Network
- Psychological Impact of the Recent Shooting
