Considerations for School Re-Entry during COVID-19:
Supporting Social and Emotional Learning and Mental and Behavioral Health Upon School Re-Entry through a Trauma- Informed, Multi-Tiered Systems of Support (MTSS) Framework.
As an organization dedicated to promoting the well-being of all individuals, The New Jersey Association of School Psychologists (NJASP) stands committed to fighting structural and systematic racism. We express outrage and deep distress regarding the murders of George Floyd, Ahmad Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and countless other Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC). Such practices by our institutions have been an ongoing stain on our nation, and continue to impair the dignity and threaten the lives of Black Americans.
