TYPES OF PROJECTS
These projects must offer students:
- access to school-based counseling services, or referrals to community-based counseling services, for assistance in coping with trauma or anxiety;
- school-based social and emotional supports for students to help address the effects of violence;
- conflict resolution and other school-based strategies to prevent future violence; and
