Mental Health Series
To truly impact school climate and create a culture of safe learning for students, a framework that incorporates system change is essential. Social Emotional Learning is a framework that allows for change by addressing system factors such as: values and beliefs driving school climate, adult interactions, interdisciplinary communication, community connections, and district policies. Innovative ideas for reflection, collaboration, and team-led change will be presented.
