The “Trauma-Informed Schools Initiative” is being implemented in Schools throughout Missouri. This initiative is a new approach to understanding and working with symptoms of chronic interpersonal trauma and traumatic stress across the lifespan.  Osage County R-III Staff will begin receiving Professional Training during the school year and it is continuing throughout the year in preparation for the rollout of this initiative.
