Deeper Dives for Schools: Practical Strategies to Serve Young Children Experiencing Homelessness (SchoolHouse Connection): Website and Tip Sheets
SchoolHouse connection has partnered with David Douglas School District in Oregon, to create a series of one-page tip sheets designed to provide schools and district staff with practical strategies to serve young children experiencing homelessness. The tip sheets have easy examples of how to take a trauma-sensitive approach. For example, instead of having school sign say, “No entry until 8,” try instead, “This room will open at 8:00 am. You are welcome to go to _________ if you arrive before then.” This creates a safe and supportive environment for all students.
