Continua walks with the school team in auditing current Trauma informed Multi-Tiered Systems of Support and then collectively as a team, members sets a mission and goals to reach the mission. This mission and action plan is all inclusive of professional learning, all stakeholder voice and participation, and continuous progress checking. Through teaming with Continua our student’s sense of belonging grew substantially in just two years at a large comprehensive high school.
Students at my comprehensive large high school felt empowered and that their voices were not only heard but that each student was making positive growth in the culture of the school community. One way that this was manifested was through the schoolwide expectations for staff and students were entirely student driven and created. This provided students agency and ownership of the school culture.
