Panel Overcoming Barriers and Launching SEL Initiatives Successfully in the COVID-19 Era


“As educators, leaders we need to be mindful of the barriers. Collectively we need to implement a process (CASEL). SEL Is not alone in isolation but is imbedded throughout the curriculum. I appreciate the resources provided, funding options, SILAS & Peekapak. [The] Model class was wonderful.”

“I want to take back to my team the different resources that are out there and find the way to include the teachers with SEL. We need to work collaboratively in order for this to be successful. It is also extremely important to have community involvement to reinforce these skills our children. Thank you for this wonderful presentation.”

“Take away from today: learning about the successful implementation of SEL school wide with the support the the district administration, curriculum based resources and the information/resources provided through guest speakers.”

“Takeaways: • Schools thrive with leadership support • Game formats can provide powerful and engaging opportunities for students to learn and practice skills • PD is needed on how programs fit into systems-level change among other effective and related interventions.”
