The Appleton Area School District has a Crisis Response Team that has been developed to provide support and assistance to students or staff who suffers a sudden loss through a death or other significant crisis. An overall plan is suggested to help create and structure an environment that will allow expression of grief and provide assistance in coping with a loss or crisis.
The Crisis Response Team is a group of community and school professionals trained to respond in situations of critical illness, pending death, and death. The team is educated, sensitive and prepared to respond.
Support is offered for individual students, student groups, staff and parents.
