Coordinating Services & Supporting Transitions

Grieving students interact with a large number of school personnel on a day-to-day basis, including educators, administrators, and support staff, each of whom have the potential to provide valuable assistance. All of these professionals should function as a team that communicates frequently and that coordinates support. This module addresses coordination of communication and services among all adults supporting a grieving student and how to ensure this coordination continues when children transition to a new grade or school.
