As an agency that supports school districts across the state, SERC is reeling from the unspeakable and incomprehensible mass shooting that took the lives of 19 children and two adults at the Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas. We remember Sandy Hook in our state nearly 10 years ago, and the many other mass shootings since that have rattled the communities where we live and work. We should not be here yet again, nor should we become numb to the senseless acts of gun violence across the country that continue to threaten the lives of even our young, innocent students and dedicated educators. Our communities must be safe for children to go to school as well as for families to go shopping, attend religious services, and pursue everyday activities without living in fear.

In these difficult times, we need to care for one another and lean on each other to support the well-being of our children and ourselves. Below are some resources for educators, parents, and others from “Teaching on Days After: Dialogue & Resources for Educating Toward Justice”:
