The “Inside SEL” webinar series features interviews with school district leaders about supporting student resilience, trauma informed practices, and more. In the Aug. 24 webinar, Boerne ISD Executive Director of Whole Child Services Lesa Pritchard explains the role social and emotional learning (SEL) plays in supporting student engagement in her district, the alignment between trauma-informed practices and academics, the district’s integration of the Aperture Great 8 Competencies, and how the district is building stakeholder engagement into its multi-tiered system of supports (MTSS) framework.
All webinars in the “Inside SEL” series will be available on demand. Visit apertureed.com/resources and filter by topic: “Inside SEL.”
“For schools who want to implement SEL programs this year, one of the most helpful things they can do is talk to other districts that have done this well. That’s why we launched our new ‘Inside SEL’ webinar series,” said Aperture Education CEO Jessica Adamson. “These webinars provide a great opportunity to hear directly from other school districts about their experiences and successes in implementing SEL programs, and Boerne ISD is a great way to kick it off.”
The “Inside SEL” webinar series is just one way Aperture Education supports educators, administrators, parents, and out-of-school time programs in promoting SEL in classrooms, homes, and after school programs. Additional resources and activities from the company include its free Back-to-School Guide, its SEL conference, and its EdSERT professional development program for teachers, as well as several free resources for families.
