SEL & Life Readiness

Watch this webinar to learn from educational leaders and SEL experts in a round table discussion of best practices to ensure our students are cognitively engaged as we move into 2021 and beyond.

This past year has shed light on the already existing need for a holistic focus on our students and the importance of comprehensively preparing them for life after graduation. We, as educators, are committed to preparing our kids for independence and their next steps in life.

Some of the topics of this webinar will include:


  • How do we know if students have developed the social and emotional competencies to be cognitively ready to learn?
  • How do we know if students are engaged in school?
  • How do we create systems to (re)engage students in school?
