Improving Climate with SEL & Restorative Practices
How do you create a school where kids feel welcome, understood, and ready to learn? You’ll hear from a principal at an urban K-8 school and her district’s director of school climate who’ve partnered with experts in SEL and RP on innovative integration of social-emotional learning (SEL) and restorative practices (RP). Often misperceived as separate, stand-alone efforts, SEL and RP are powerful in combination. Learn about practical integration strategies for school-wide training and support.
