Part II: Social-Emotional Learning & Safety
The evening will include a presentation from district staff and the opportunity to engage in table conversations about the following current social-emotional learning and safety measures that are ongoing in the Five Star District:
Social-emotional learning - including districtwide social-emotional curriculum by level and staff who support the social-emotional well-being of all students.
Crisis response and recovery - including staff and roles, and how we provide support to students, schools and families during and after a crisis situation.
Mental health supports for students and families - including suicide awareness and assessment, mental health supports at the district and school level, and community partnerships.
Prevention initiatives to create safe and supportive schools - including bullying prevention efforts and work towards being a trauma-informed district.
- Parent partnership - your role and how you can support the social-emotional well-being of all students.
There will be an opportunity in the meeting to ask additional questions you may have.
When people think of safety, one of three categories often come to mind - physical, social-emotional or cyber safety. These categories of safety work together collaboratively to ensure the overall safety of all students and staff. One cannot be considered the only safety approach and together, they create the district’s web of safety [Spanish].
