Trauma Informed School Recipients
The Tennessee Department of Education has announced two schools in the Franklin County School Distirct that been selected through a competitive application process for the new cohort of trauma-informed schools. These two schools are Huntland Schools (Pre K-12) and North Middle School (6-8).
These two schools have committed to a two-year development cycle with the department, including high-quality training, resources, and ongoing support as they implement trauma-informed strategies.
"Every student has a story, and by approaching students through a trauma-informed lens, schools are better equipped to provide the academic and nonacademic supports needed to help each and every student reach their unique potential,” said Commissioner Penny Schwinn. “Through participation in the trauma-informed schools cohort, schools across Tennessee will have the opportunity to receive trainings and resources around this critical work so schools can provide essential supports to help students be successful.”
