District leaders, school leaders, and teachers are united in a common purpose: to provide a positive educational environment for students. In order to make this vision a reality, districts across the country are embracing systemic social-emotional learning, an approach that actively incorporates social, emotional, and academic competencies in every aspect of school life.

But oftentimes, there can be a disconnect between district-level goals and the reality teachers are experiencing on the ground in their classrooms. As a district administrator, you may be looking to bring SEL to your district, but are concerned about potential barriers such as teacher burnout, building teacher capacity and skills for social-emotional learning, or gaining teacher buy-in for social-emotional learning. Join this webinar to hear from educational leaders on how to offer support to classroom teachers.

This webinar will cover how to:

  • Build strong lines of communication with teachers and gather feedback
  • Support adult well-being and teacher/staff social-emotional learning
  • Provide resources and opportunities for growth and care
  • Have clear goals for SEL implementation in your district
