Handle with Care: Collaborative Response for Youth Exposed to Violence
Monday, May 16, 2022
In 2019, the San Antonio Police Department partnered with San Antonio ISD, Northeast ISD, and East Central ISD to implement the “Handle with Care” program to better ensure that children who are exposed to traumatic events in their home or community receive appropriate interventions. Started originally in West Virginia, the Handle with Care program promotes a partnership between law enforcement and partner school districts to address the tremendous impacts of traumatic incidents on student academic performance, discipline, and safety. The workshop will outline the implementation process, lessons learned, and future of San Antonio’s Handle with Care program from both the law enforcement and school district perspective.
