SEL Webinar
Social-emotional learning, or SEL, is the idea that education should go beyond academics. In today's world, social skills and emotional development aren't ancillary to an excellent education; they're a crucial part of it.
But the implementation process goes beyond programming; communicating the value of social and emotional learning is a vital part of the process. It's changing the culture of the district. It's selling SEL.
Join us on Tuesday, November 5th at 9:00 am for a webinar where we'll hear from Dr. Joe Ricca, Superintendent of White Plains Public School in New York. He will share how he delivered this message and helped his school community embrace social-emotional learning.

Nov 5, 2019 09:00 AM in Eastern Time (US and Canada)
