About the Summit

Designed for district teams, this two day summit will take participants on a deep dive into issues of vision, implementation planning and progress monitoring. Participants will hear from experts in the field and superintendents who have been leading SEL work in their districts, and will be given a chance to learn from each other as communities of practice. Participants will also work together to debrief the sessions and design implementation plans they can carry into the school year. 

Who Should Attend?

The summit is designed specifically for district teams who are interested in starting, continuing or enhancing SEL initiatives in their schools.
