Handle With Care is a program that enables local police to notify school districts when they encounter a child at a traumatic scene.  This provides an opportunity for school personnel to implement trauma-informed practices while the student is at school and also provides an opportunity for students to be referred to appropriate supports within the school and community as needed.  As we know, exposure to trauma can result in negative educational outcomes for youth.  By supporting students exposed to trauma and making appropriate referrals to supports, we can assist in mitigating the long-term impacts of trauma and promote positive educational outcomes.
