Social and Emotional Learning
Social and emotional learning (SEL) refers to the process by which children and adults acquire and effectively apply the knowledge, attitudes and skills necessary to do the following: understand and manage emotions; set and achieve positive goals; feel and show empathy for others; and make responsible decisions. Students in SEL programs are more likely to attend school and receive better grades, and are less likely to have conduct problems. Successful infusion of SEL can result in positive behaviors, increased academic success, and caring communities.

Embedding Social and Emotional Learning in High School Classrooms
This webinar will provide a rationale for integrating academic, social, and emotional learning and support in every classroom as the foundation of an approach to social and emotional learning (SEL) in high schools. It will discuss a framework that links the development of student mindsets, four broad skill sets, specific learning and life competencies, and desired target behaviors. Through an illustration of what this approach can look like in daily practice, participants will deepen their knowledge and understanding of how to implement SEL in high schools, learn about specific strategies and practices, and be inspired to take on the challenge. They will receive Engaging Schools’ white paper, Embedding Social and Emotional Learning in High School Classrooms.
New Developments in Transgender Access and Student Privacy Issues
When transgender students have requested to use restrooms that align with their gender identity, it has sometimes created controversies in schools. While some school districts have permitted transgender students to use these restrooms without incident, other districts have strongly opposed such policies. For example, school officials have denied requests by arguing that these policies violate the privacy rights of cisgender students, which has led to litigation. At the same time, the Trump administration has rescinded departmental guidance on this matter, and there is no U.S. Supreme Court decision to offer direction. This session will examine the current status of the law; help you understand what your circuit has decided about this matter; and examine how litigation might be avoided with regard to transgender restroom access.
