Video 2 Learn how the Partnership for Resilience, originally known as the “Southland Education and Health Initiative,” is working with teachers, administrators, and health care professionals to meet the needs of students impacted by adverse childhood experiences (ACEs). This second installment of a series shows how dedicated and caring educators in Calumet Park School District 132 boosted parent engagement, expanded dental care for students, and moved toward becoming “trauma-informed.” In schools where 90% of students are low-income, out of school suspensions were reduced significantly, expulsions eliminated, and strong connections forged between teachers, administrators, union leaders, and students.
