The following manuals are undergoing revisions and will be made available as soon as they have been completed. STAR-Center recommends that school districts, working closely with their community resources, prepare for tragedies by developing policies and procedures that may be activated on very short notice. This manual is intended to help school personnel prepare for the possibility of a tragedy, including suicide, within the school community.
