SE Missourian: School districts across the state such as ones in Cape Girardeau and Jackson are participating in the state’s recently enacted Trauma Informed Schools Initiative. The Missouri Legislature created the initiative three years ago, authorizing the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education to provide online resources to schools to help them work with students who have experienced various forms of trauma.
