Description: Educators and students alike are facing unprecedented uncertainty around the upcoming 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.

Join REL West, the Region 15 Comprehensive Center, and the National Center to Improve Social & Emotional Learning and School Safety for a free webinar and panel discussion on how school district and site leaders can support the social and emotional needs of students as they return to school.

Panelists will 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, strategies will address:

  • Creating safe and supportive school environments;
  • Promoting family and community communication and collaboration; and
  • Fostering collective care.

This webinar is the second in a three-part series on supporting the social and emotional needs of educators and students during and after the COVID-19 pandemic.

Audience: This webinar is designed to support school and school district leaders as they plan for the reopening of schools.
