Trauma-Informed Schools Initiative

The Trauma-Informed Schools Initiative was implemented in schools throughout Missouri in 2017. This initiative is a new approach to understanding and working with symptoms of chronic interpersonal trauma and traumatic stress across the lifespan. Hillsboro R-3 teachers, counselors, and principals receive training focused on trauma-informed approaches to support all students in the classroom.
