UPLIFT: Parent & Caregiver Survey
Realizing the increasing need for mental health supports for children, particularly in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, Connecticut passed new legislation on July 1st, 2022. This legislation directed the six Regional Education Service Centers (RESCs) in the state to hire a Regional Trauma Coordinator with the goal of creating a program that helps schools understand and support students who have experienced trauma. This program will be available to all public school districts in the state beginning with the 2023-2024 school year.
In order to ensure the program's effectiveness, the Regional Trauma Coordinators have designed a survey specifically for parents and caregivers. This survey seeks your opinions regarding how the school takes care of your child's overall well-being. This includes aspects such as the school environment, parental involvement, and the child's mental and physical health. The valuable insights shared will contribute to development of the program.
We invite parents and caregivers to take the survey in their preferred language using the links above.
