Life’s Passages

Life is no straight and easy corridor along which we travel free and unhampered, but a maze of passages, through which we must seek our way, lost and confused, now and again checked in a blind alley. But always, if we have faith, a door will open for us, not perhaps one that we ourselves would ever have thought of but one that will ultimately prove good for us.

- A. J. Cronin

Responding to a School Crisis

The immediate goals of school staff after a crisis are to reestablish a sense of safety and restore the learning environment at the school. The first step is to ensure that the building and grounds of the school are secure and well monitored so that students and staff can regain a sense of trust and safety.

To achieve these goals, each member of the school community must work both individually and as a member of a team to take the steps needed to restore balance to the school environment. Positive working relationships among school staff not only achieve the goal of recovery from a school crisis, but the staff’s actions provide positive role models for students and life-long lessons about how to conduct oneself during times of adversity.

For information on funding for school-crisis recovery, please visit the U.S. Department of Education SERV Funding for Crisis Recovery.
