Department of Education

The Tennessee Department of Education has announced that two schools in the Franklin County School District have been selected through a competitive application process for the new cohort of trauma-informed schools.

The schools designated are Huntland School and North Middle School.

The schools have committed to a two-year development cycle with the department, including high-quality training, resources and ongoing support as they implement trauma-informed strategies.

“Every student has a story, and by approaching students through a trauma-informed lens, schools are better equipped to provide the academic and nonacademic supports needed to help each and every student reach their unique potential,” Education Commissioner Penny Schwinn said. “Through participation in the trauma-informed cohort, schools across Tennessee will have the opportunity to receive training and resources around this critical work so schools can provide essential support to help students be successful.”
