Summit Agenda - Available Soon
Who Should Attend:
As was done last year, the 2nd Annual Educating the Whole Child Summit will once again focus on district implementation and integration of SEL and mental health as part of creating the conditions for learning. A substantial amount of time is dedicated to team work and planning time. To this end, we recommend districts send leadership teams in order to get the most they can out of the Summit. However, we recognize that this is not possible for all districts and so please know we also do the best we can to make this meaningful should you only be able to send 1 or 2 people. With this in mind we would like to offer the below suggestions as to who to include on your team, but also recognize that each team will look different.
- Person(s) most responsible within district for overseeing SEL/Mental Health
- One or two administrators (this could include your superintendent)
- Teacher leaders
- Key school-based community mental health provider
- Student Services Coordinators
- Data Specialist
For now, we have set a max of 8 people per district so as many districts as possible will have a chance to send a team but we will also begin a waiting list and will open it up to larger numbers per district should there be space closer to the event. To have additional names added to wait list, please contact Julia Hillenburg, email@example.com
