Developing Intentional Systems to Support Social Emotional Learning in a Rural Community

Great Lakes V (Lower Level)
19 January
Time:  1:45 pm - 3:00 pm
Location:  Great Lakes V (Lower Level)

How do you put out a dumpster fire when you have limited resources, limited buy-in, and a general lack of understanding around mental health and challenging student behaviors? Recognizing significant trauma, mental health needs, absenteeism, and discipline issues connected to missing skills drove our administrative team to find proactive ways to change the school climate to meet the needs of our students, staff, and community where they are. In this session, we will share our story, and help attendees identify spaces within their district where they can embed pieces of this work into existing systems to create positive change. No fancy fire extinguishers needed!
