Crisis Response Team
The Covina-Valley Unified School District has established and trained a Crisis Response Team to provide support following a school or community crisis or disaster.
CRISIS RESPONSE COLLABORATORS AND TEAMS:
SCHOOL RESOURCE OFFICER
DISTRICT SOCIAL WORKERS
Our crisis response team is made up of specially trained supports who can be called upon to respond to any crisis that temporarily immobilizes the effective functioning of our school systems. Our team of district social workers, psychologists and counselors provide immediate psychological first aid, which is an intervention designed to provide initial help and follow-up support to restore the school community to a place where students feel safe and secure as soon as possible. After the initial psychological first aid, the team provides debriefing for the staff and administrators, as well as follow-up care and linkage to resources when appropriate.
The Covina-Valley Crisis Response team has successfully responded to many crisis incidents in our schools over the years and continues to be ready to respond to any crisis affecting our school communities.
