It is the participant’s responsibility to ensure that they are meeting the requirements of their school, organization, and/or state.

An inclusive and positive climate plays a significant role in increasing student engagement in schools. Join us for an exchange with Sheldon Berman and Carol Johnson, two experienced superintendents for their practical ideas on how to integrate social and emotional learning and build positive and inclusive school cultures where all students can thrive.

During this conversation participants will:

  • Discuss how to help to integrate social and emotional learning across a system 
  • Consider how SEL can shape  instructional practices to foster students’ sense of belonging
  • Reflect together on the role that school leaders can play in empowering students to understand and interpret the world around them 
  • Build their professional network and connect with school and district leaders from across the US

You will be eligible to receive one-hour of professional development credit for participation if you watch the webinar. You will be able to download a certificate of completion from your inbox within the week of the webinar. Check with your school or district in advance of the webinar to ensure that the professional development credit is accepted.
