Part One: How Social-Emotional Learning Enhances Learning, Engages the Community and Supports Student Retention
Parents have more choices than ever in how and where to educate their children. According to the national market research by NCEA and FADICA, preparing students for the job market, teaching strong communication skills, moral development and a strong sense of community are among the top reasons parents choose Catholic schools. Biblically-based social emotional learning (SEL) teaches students how to manage their emotions, set and achieve goals, overcome obstacles, and develop healthy relationships – skills necessary to succeed in school, be prepared for the workforce, and become positive and healthy contributors to society. With whole-school SEL, student academic success and engagement increases, and student behavioral challenges and teacher burn-out decreases. Communities that make everyone feel safe, successful and supported engage and retain families. In this webinar, we will briefly discuss what SEL is and why it sets your school apart. We will talk about how to develop a school climate and culture around SEL and how to share the great things happening in your school to involve all stakeholders to be actively engaged in the community, ultimately resulting in higher retention rates.
