The goal of the learning collaborative is to improve the integration of trauma-informed schools (TIS) and Cultural Responsiveness, Anti-Racism & Equity (CARE) efforts into comprehensive school mental health systems through their partnership with the NCS3. This two-year learning collaborative intentionally integrates these essential components to better promote equity and well-being for all students and staff.

Participating districts and schools will receive:

  • Monthly virtual learning sessions for district teams

  • Quarterly online training for school staff

  • Ongoing technical assistance and training from national experts

  • Participation in a national community of school districts engaged in continuous quality improvement

The National Center for Safe Supportive Schools is excited to support these districts with implementing equitable, culturally responsive, and healing-centered school mental health. By engaging in the S3 Learning Collaborative, these 16 districts are demonstrating a commitment to promoting safe supportive schools in their communities.

Congratulations to these districts! We are looking forward to collaborating with you and your schools for these next two years.
