As districts weigh their options for reopening in the 2020-21 academic year, many education leaders are proposing a hybrid learning model. Although there are still many unknowns, it is clear that students will be returning to school buildings having experienced a considerable degree of trauma. Understanding students’ social-emotional needs and creating safe, consistent routines will need to come before academic learning recovery.

Join us for an expert Q&A with district and school leaders from Racine Unified School District, CharacterStrong, and Panorama Education. Panelists will cover:

  • How to prioritize students’ social-emotional learning in a hybrid learning environment
  • The role of SEL in school reopening plans and Tier 1 instruction
  • The importance of pairing social-emotional learning measurement and stakeholder voices with SEL curriculum and character education
