Central Indiana Educational Service Center (CIESC) will serve almost 93,000 students in six districts and Indiana Online School. Through the expansion of trauma-informed solutions, including a trauma-informed anonymous reporting system (ARS)/help application, Rachel’s Challenge (school violence prevention program), Terrace Metrics (behavioral health and wellness assessment and intervention), Thrive (personalized and adaptive cognitive behavioral training), and PREPaRE Training (improving school crisis response and management plans), CIESC will focus all efforts on violence prevention for creating and sustaining safe schools. These schools are being supported with additional evidence-based trauma-informed programs and services to best meet the more complex needs of their student populations. CIESC serves 36 member districts across central Indiana.
