Lower Merion School District


Crisis Response Teams

Members of the District staff have been trained in responding to atypical events and in meeting the needs of students and staff when schools are faced with an emergency situation. Crisis response teams are available across the District with varying membership depending on the situation. Team members may include school psychologists, school counselors, social workers, nurses, and administrators. In addition to responding to the immediate situation, members of the team are available for subsequent support and counseling to students, families, and staff. Student Services organizes and coordinates the Crisis Response Team, collaborating with school staff and other District staff as determined by the event at hand.
