REL West; Region 15 Comprehensive Center; Center to Improve Social & Emotional Learning and School Safety
The COVID-19 pandemic has caused educators and students alike to face unprecedented uncertainty around the 2020-21 school year. Regardless of how learning is organized — remote, in-person, or hybrid — it is crucial for schools to focus on restoring environments and relationships that support student wellness, connection, and ultimately, achievement.
This webinar and panel discussion focuses on how school district and site leaders can support the social and emotional needs of students as they return to school.
Panelists share evidence-based information about social and emotional competencies that educators can use to rebuild conditions of success for students. Using a trauma-informed lens, this webinar’s strategies address:
- Creating safe and supportive school environments
- Promoting family and community communication and collaboration
- Fostering collective care
This is the second webinar in a three-part series on supporting the social and emotional needs of educators and students during and after the COVID-19 pandemic.
