School leaders from four communities affected by recent mass shootings and ICE raids to speak
In September 2019, the IDRA EAC-South held a livestream event on Supporting Students in the Wake of Violence. Superintendents from El Paso (Texas) and Jackson (Mississippi), and district leaders from the Parkland (Florida) and Charlottesville (Virginia) communities shared stories of courage in facing the aftermath of traumatic events for students, teachers and families.
This event was part of the IDRA EAC-South Annual Regional Convening where we hosted over 100 guests from all levels of education and organizations leading equity efforts. The purpose of the annual meeting is to disseminate information regarding technical assistance services, materials and resources as well as conduct a regional needs assessment.
