Congratulations to The Bayard School

The Bayard School is recognized for outstanding achievement in providing trauma- informed services and has been awarded the “Compassionate Champion Award” presented on behalf of The Family Services Cabinet Council.  This recognition means that Bayard exemplifies what it means to be a trauma-informed organization in Delaware.

Specifically, Bayard meets the following criteria:

  • Creating respectful, sensitive, and culturally competent environments 
  • Implementing evidence-based trauma-informed principles and practices that address the effects associated with trauma 
  • Developing a common language and framework for dialogue and discussion to enhance communication and progress along the continuum of trauma-informed care 

  • Increasing the effectiveness and responsivity of all services and assistance provided to Delawareans, especially children and adults who have experienced traumatic circumstances.

 The Virtual Compassionate Champion Award Ceremony will be held on Tuesday, October 20, 2020 from 5:00PM – 6:30PM. 

Special kudos to Mrs. Amanda Hendrickson-Davis, Mrs. Karen Knight and Mr. Victoir Calhoon.  Join us in recognizing the outstanding work of The Bayard School, students and staff.
