When it comes to grief support at school, many educators feel underprepared to help. In fact, according to a recent survey by the New York Life Foundation and American Federation of Teachers, ninety-two percent of educators think that there should be a greater focus on training educators to support grieving students, and ninety-one percent say that they personally would be interested in participating in bereavement training offered through their school or district.
New York Life’s Grief-Sensitive Schools Initiative was created to address the gap in grief support in schools by providing resources and tools for school communities to support grieving students and their families. Any K-12 accredited private or public school and school district can request to be part of this program.
