North Lauderdale Elementary receives a $500 Grief- Sensitive Grant

      NORTH LAUDERDALE, FL — North Lauderdale Elementary today announced it received a $500 Grief-Sensitive Grant from the New York Life Foundation, which will help the school to develop a bereavement support plan and encourage on-going staff development.

Over several years, the New York Life Foundation, in partnership with National Center of School Crisis and Bereavement, has been working with the leading K-12 education professional organizations to form the Coalition to Support Grieving Students to develop a set of materials and a website, www.grievingstudents.org, to help teachers, counselors, and other people in the school community to provide comfort and guidance to bereaved students.

The Coalition found through a survey that just seven percent of schoolteachers feel adequately prepared to help grieving students when they return to the classroom, even though 70 percent of them have a grieving student in their classroom at any given time. And studies show that a child’s unresolved grief can have a social and emotional impact on him or her, leading to behavioral issues and poor performance in school.

The grant will be used to develop a plan to activate when a student suffers a loss, or a death occurs in the school community.
