Thank you for your interest in using the Trauma-Informed Schools Organizational Readiness Assessment!
The Trauma-Informed Schools Organizational Readiness Assessment consists of 16 items across three domains: general capacity of the school to implement trauma-informed schools, specific capacity of the school to carry out trauma-informed approaches, and overall level of motivation for implementation. The tool is intended to be completed by the school team that will eventually become the trauma-informed schools steering committee, which typically consists of administrators, teachers, school mental health professionals, key staff, and organizational champions. Involving caregivers, older students, district-level partners, community partners, and members of the broader community may also be helpful, depending on the structure and function of the school’s committees.
