emotional and behavioral evidence-based interventions to reduce and ameliorate violence,

depression, anxiety, social isolation, school exclusion, and drop out. In the wake of this and other
tragedies, we stand with our partners at the American Educational Research Association, the
National Association of School Psychologists, the Council for Exceptional Children, and other
organizations committed to improving the lives of students and teachers and will do everything
in our power to reduce the likelihood of future terrible events.
