Empowering Education: RTS Awarded NED Grant

Resource Training & Solutions has received the NED (Non-Exclusionary Discipline) grant from MDE which will allow us to support our regional schools in the following ways:

  • Resource will be trained and certified to deliver evidenced based training on Trauma-Informed Systems.
  • Establish implementation teams with participating schools/districts to build capacity for trauma-skilled training, restorative practices, and non-exclusionary discipline policies and procedures.
  • Monitor implementation using data, providing technical assistance as needed.
  • Provide a toolbox of non-exclusionary discipline practices that focuses on accountability, restorative practices, and supportive relationships. With a trauma-informed lens, the toolbox will hold tools, strategies, and resources to use with individuals, in classrooms, and for the purpose of community building.
  • Operationalize a facilitated network for participating districts/schools.

This  work will benefit Tier 1, 2, and 3 support, foster inclusive and accountable culture, prioritize relationships and accountability, and shift mindsets from reacting to behavior to understanding the behavior - working WITH the student.
