D.C. Public Schools and Aldine Public Schools, two of the nation’s largest school districts, are using social-emotional learning, trauma-responsive and restorative practices to ensure each student has the supports in place to learn and thrive. Join this webinar to hear district leaders share their vision and concrete strategies for interrupting inequitable practices and creating more inclusive and supportive learning environments.

This webinar will cover how to:

  • Embed 5 key trauma-responsive SEL practices in response to the current health crisis and incidents of racial violence and unrest
  • Put SEL and equity at the heart of discipline policies with a shift to restorative practices
  • Form diverse teams to respond to disproportionalities in data
  • Understand our own (adult) social-emotional learning as a starting place for disrupting the current system
