Conditions for Learning: Emotional Safety, PART 1 and PART 2

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.

School teams will be supported to review and use the results of their Conditions for Learning survey results in the area of Emotional Safety.  Data toolkits will be provided to all participants; expert facilitators will use the toolkits with participants to determine areas of need and focus for work at the school or district level within culture/climate that would directly impact the area of SEBMH. There will be support to identify evidence-based practices and interventions schools may use to address the area of Emotional Safety.  Participants will need to have access to the Iowa School Performance Profile report results from 2018, EdInsight for more detailed reports, and will need to attend Part 1 and Part 2 sessions (back-to-back sessions) on either day one or day two of the conference.  

Please note that this session is a PILOT, and participants will be expected to provide feedback on the process and outcomes of the data toolkit.

*This session (Part 1 and 2) is repeated on June 14
