Central Illinois Valley Division Meeting 10/06/2021
Aligning Social Emotional Learning (SEL) to Board Priorities. How can boards foster environments that promote SEL and empower students to embrace accountability for educational success more readily?
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.
