THE ESSENTIALS OF SAFETY SECURITY IN YOUR DISTRICT
AN INFORMATIVE WEBINAR KEYNOTED BY DR. JOE ERARDI

Why High Yield Social and Emotional Learning Programs Are Essential to the Safety and Security of Districts

In order to ensure the safety and well-being of students, it's imperative that schools tie in social-emotional learning programs. These programs help students better understand how to manage their emotions, consider the feelings of others, and learn important social skills. They also help alert educators to any students who may be struggling with depression, bullying, unhealthy relationships, or other issues.
