• Healing and Resilience Resources


    The Office of CLRI has compiled healing and resilience lessons and resources for educators to support them in working with their scholars to mitigate the harmful effects of the racial trauma experienced by the horrific tragedy that occurred within the Buffalo community on May 14, 2022. These lessons and resources can also be used to address other traumatic events that impact our students and district community. Teacher reflection resources for preparing to have these courageous and healing dialogues with our scholars who need this level of engagement and processing during this difficult time are also included.


    We encourage you to use these resources as a platform for processing and identifying emotions and fostering hope, healing, and resilience after traumatic events have occurred.
