CHICO, Calif. - Students will go back to school Aug. 15 but classes have already kicked off for teachers.

About 750 faculty members with the Chico Unified School District gathered for a full-day of learning Tuesday, Aug. 13.

The annual training covered a wide range of topics including transgender awareness, human trafficking prevention, and mindfulness for stress management.

Since the Camp Fire, trauma response and mental wellness remain a top priority for the Butte County Office of Education.

"We are always looking for new ways to support our kids," said Felix Deluna, an intervention specialist with Chico Junior High. "Not just our escalated kids - our trauma kids - but all of our students and that's what today is all about."

Over 12,000 students are expected to start classes within the Chico Unified School District on Aug. 15.
