The Maine Department of Education would like to send one last reminder that the applications for the Trauma Informed Readiness and Response Workshop are due Friday, December 20, 2019.
From the competitive pool of applicants, 65 teams will be selected for an interactive workshop with their team of three. The day will be focused on Trauma Informed Practices and Culture, with the outcome of each team developing their own plan, or Road Map, that will help guide their schools. Selected teams are eligible for mileage reimbursement and stipends for any substitutes needed for this event. As this event is slated to reach capacity, unfortunately, only teams of three can participate so that we can maximize the number of school teams.
