Aligning Social Emotional Learning to Board Priorities

Fostering environments that promote Social Emotional Learning equips and empowers students to embrace accountability for educational success more readily. SEL stands as a process that fuses the acquisition of skills toward knowledge application, emotional management, and social awareness. This fusion provides greater balance for students by intensifying their self-awareness and supporting further development of cognitive abilities. Cara Wiley, Illinois State Board of Education Director of School Wellness, will share the significance of a district leadership approach to SEL priorities. This leadership approach demands that SEL priorities begin at the board level with decision-making that cultivates an environment conducive to acceptance and achievement. As time permits, a Q&A period will follow the featured presentation.
