Lansing School District Project PEACE

The Lansing School District’s Project Prevent grant (Project PEACE), under the Office of Culture, is providing a series of four professional development sessions on trauma-sensitive schools. The series will focus on developing a safe and supportive environment for students who have been exposed to traumatic/toxic stress. To prepare for the series, the district has developed a website to house resources, including the district’s PEACETalks as well as learning modules on trauma-sensitive schools from the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction. The district has also released a Project PEACE Newsletter, "Educating Through A Trauma Lens", that: 1) highlights what trauma is and how it impacts the brain, and 2) describes essential elements of trauma-informed care and how educators and staff can address each element. More newsletters featuring different areas of focus will be distributed during the 2017-18 school year.
