EDC Webinar: Supporting Students’ SEL & Mental Health During COVID-19 - Best Practices from the Field

Thursday, June 4, 2020

Our colleagues at Education Development Center (EDC) and Transforming Education would like to invite you to a Free Webinar on best practices in supporting social and emotional learning (SEL) supports to students, families, and teachers.

The spread of COVID-19 and related school closures have created unprecedented levels of stress, anxiety, and sadness among students, their families, and school staff. In the past two months, school personnel have gone to extraordinary lengths to support the social and emotional needs of their students in compassionate and creative ways. This webinar will highlights some of lessons learned and best practices from these experiences, with an eye toward the longterm supports that students may need throughout the summer and into the fall. 

The webinar will provide an interactive forum for participants to share challenges, opportunities, and ideas with one other. Content will be informed by the Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS) framework, designed to help districts establish comprehensive social and emotional learning and mental health approaches for all students, families and teachers. 

June 4th, 3:00-4:30 PM EST.
