Navigating a Post-COVID Return for K-12

This fall, students and staff will return to school having lived through three once-in-a-lifetime events – COVID-19, a social justice movement (still ongoing), and political unrest – and when they do, K-12 BITs need to be prepared to face the increased mental health needs that will be present in every school. The loss of school-based social activities, interpersonal daily face-to-face connections, and general out of school social and organized activities for many of our students and staff added an unprecedented level of mental health and other issues. Teams need to understand how this major disruption in daily access to the K-12 educational process impacted the identification and intervention cycles within our schools. Research shows that children and adolescents may have higher rates of anxiety, acute stress disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, suicide ideation, substance abuse, and other mental health illnesses as a result. We must prepare our teams to meet the incoming demands. Please join us as we highlight the top ten steps for teams to consider to ensure student and staff needs are met when everyone returns to school full-time.
