Trauma-informed Resources

Agora Cyber Charter School is excited to inform families that we are a trauma-informed school. In fact, Agora is currently the only trauma-informed cyber school in the country!


What This Means for Agora:

As the only trauma-informed cyber school in the country, Agora Cyber Charter School will seek to:

  1. Realize the widespread impact of Adverse Childhood Experiences, also known as childhood trauma.
  2. Recognize the signs and symptoms of trauma.
  3. Respond and integrate knowledge about trauma into school practices to develop resiliency and improve learning outcomes for all children.
  4. Resist potentially re-traumatizing students and staff.

 

What This Means for You:

Many times, families are not aware of the effects of trauma, or how to react to a child exposed to psychologically distressing events involving intense fear, terror and helplessness.  The brochure below begins to explain how we hope to help through our partnership with the Attachment & Trauma Network, Inc (ATN). We also encourage all families to watch the videos below from one of ATN’s directors to gain a deeper understanding of the impact of trauma in children’s lives:
