D-300 revamps crisis plan, details steps to recovery
CARPENTERSVILLE – Counselors and social workers from District 300 have unveiled a clearer plan to help administrators, teachers and students cope with traumatic events, such as the death of a student or staff member.
Gary Chester, the district’s safety officer, said an incident two years ago in which an elementary student was hit by a school bus revealed deficiencies in the district’s crisis plan. Officials said they hope the reworked plan will provide more comprehensive support to help schools deal with crises and emphasize ways to recover from an event that can threaten the overall psyche of a community.
“It’s always that psyche part that we leave behind,” Chester said. “We were focused on addressing violence and other traumatic events and getting through it, but what happens afterward?”
