Did you miss the webinar?

Join us from 3:30 - 4:30 pm ET 
February 28, 2019 for a free webinar.


Social-emotional learning (SEL) is an important part of student well-being and is linked to improvements in academic success.

However, a recent report from PACE (Policy Analysis for California Education, April 2018) indicates there is a lack of clarity and consensus regarding the definition of social-emotional learning, how to implement it, and what it looks like in classrooms and schools. Without a clear and common language, sharing of best practices and learning from one another can be difficult, slowing progress for all.

Join RTI International’s Center for Education Services to help clarify those concerns. This webinar will help participants begin to clarify a specific and common vision for social-emotional learning. Participants will engage in dialogue as partners to define safe learning environments and to identify common strategies to build such environments, with an emphasis on school, classroom, and district settings that support social-emotional learning. This webinar will provide participants with a common language and implementation strategies, as well as a clear path forward for creating safe learning environments in their classrooms, schools, and districts.
