The ESC of Northeast Ohio is offering a unique professional development opportunity for the 2020-2021 school year.  Each district is invited to select a group of educators who will lead social and emotional learning (SEL) implementation efforts in their school and/or district.  Participants in this course will spend the year as part of a multi-district cohort learning not only about social and emotional learning (SEL) theory, pedagogy and practice but also exploring the components of effective and sustainable SEL implementation and how that promotes a safe and welcoming school climate.  Each session in this series will build on the work done in previous sessions and all will be delivered through an equity lends that emphasizes trauma-sensitive and restorative practices.  By the end of this course, attendees will leave with a solid and evidence-based implementation plan to guide rollout efforts throughout the district. Through this cohort experience, participants will...
  • Develop a shared understanding of SEL and establish a clear vision that clarifies how SEL supports student success. 
  • Identify existing programs, practices, and other school-based frameworks (PBIS, MTSS, etc..) that can support the essential components of schoolwide SEL.
  • Set clear goals that build off existing efforts and develop a customized, phased plan with action steps for rolling out SEL implementation to all schools
  • develop communication strategies to share progress with all stakeholders
  • Support staff in reflecting on and developing personal social and emotional competencies.
  • Create structures for ongoing data collection and reflective practice to drive the process for continuous improvement.
