Social and Emotional Learning in EWSD

  • In 2019-2020 EWSD began to emphasize the ‘growing hearts’ piece of our mission with a strong commitment to social and emotional learning (SEL).

    We know that by supporting social and emotional learning, we have the power to improve behavioral, academic and long-term outcomes for students.

  • Staff to Support SEL

    To help further our efforts, we have Social and Emotional Learning Coaches for our schools. We have also focused the work of Behavioral Interventionists to support students and staff on an individual basis.

    The Coach’s main responsibility is supporting all of our staff as they work to build the social and emotional skills of students across EWSD.  We are using the 5 competencies consistent with the Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL) to guide our work.

    Dylan McNamara, Director of Social & Emotional Learning and Wellness, leads this work across the district.
