Snohomish County Human Services, Behavioral Health, is offering an opportunity to Snohomish County public schools to participate in a two (2) year program to install trauma-informed practices into K-12 schools. Two cohorts of seventeen (17) schools, elementary through high school, have already begun this work throughout Snohomish County. The goals of implementing trauma-informed practices into school settings include, but are not limited to, the following: decreased exclusionary discipline, decreased absenteeism, increased graduation rates, increased teaching time, and increased staff knowledge and skills to manage behaviors and create meaningful relationships with all students. Trauma-informed practice implementation is a universal intervention, and best-practices apply to all students, not just those with known trauma.
Snohomish County Human Services, Behavioral Health, is seeking interested public school districts within Snohomish County to apply for two (2) years of in-depth training and technical assistance from Continua Consulting Group LLC to install trauma-informed practices into one (1) or more of their K-12 schools. Agreements for services are expected to begin in August 2018.
For all details regarding this opportunity, including school contribution requirements and letter of interest and submission requirements, open and view the Trauma-Informed Practices Consultation Request for Letters of Interest (PDF). All submission instructions must be followed for letters to be considered.
Please email questions about this process. All questions and answers will be made available via this website.
Each interested school shall submit a letter of interest no later than Friday, May 18, 2018 at 3pm. Letters must be emailed to Amanda Franke. Late submissions or incomplete letters will not be accepted.
