Crisis Intervention in the Schools
When a tragedy, such as a loss of life or devastating event, affects a school community, crisis intervention services are available. Crisis response teams comprised of schools counselors, social workers, and psychologists, with additional support staff, offer the support needed within the school. Their interventions are integral to ensuring students’ continued availability for learning and to address possible long-term impacts of the event(s).
Should the impact of a traumatic event affect the school community significantly, crisis resource teams are available for support. School psychologists and social workers are assigned to teams and teams are on call for additional assistance: intervention, logistics, etc. Principals who need additional assistance will call the Central Office for support.
For further information about crisis intervention resources, contact your school’s principal. For additional questions, please contact your school principal or the Stafford County Public Schools’ Department of Safety, Security & Risk Management at (540) 658-6000.
