Overview of the School Site and District Crisis Teams
 LAUSD crisis intervention teams operate within a two-tier system of response. At the school site, “Under the direction of the principal or designee, every school shall establish a crisis team” (Bulletin 962.1) to respond to events that lead to:
  • Temporary disruption of regular school functions and routines
  • Significant interference with the ability of students and staff to focus on learning
  • Physical and/or psychological injury to students and staff
  • Concentrated attention from the community and news media

At the second tier, CCIS organizes and trains District Crisis Teams, comprised of multidisciplinary employee volunteers who, in turn, support school site crisis teams. Led by the Educational Service Center Coordinators, the Education Service Center Teams and CCIS respond to events which overwhelm the resources of the school and provide technical assistance to school-site teams to:

  • Help students return to a safe environment and calm routine
  • Re-establish the "social connectedness" of students with family, teachers and peers
  • Minimize the negative effects of trauma
  • Support constructive coping behaviors and the natural resilience of students
  • Facilitate full student attendance and participation in the learning process.

 

Consultation and training is available by CCIS Staff. Please contact ailleth.tom@lausd.net
