Schools and districts across the country are continually attempting to implement various initiatives and approaches such as Social Emotional Learning, A Multi-Tiered System of Support (PBIS/RTI), Trauma-Informed Schools, Restorative Justice, Whole Child and many more. At the heart of these varied approaches is a desire for a humane education system, environments that foster and nurture our collective humanity. Places where adults and youth want to be and feel they belong. Creating environments where all feel authentically valued. A place for connection to learning and to each other, where everyone feels supported and nurtured. Even with the best of intentions without a systems approach rooted in equity and community the result is fragmented systems that often perpetuate the harm they are trying to prevent, retraumatizing students, families, and staff. Staff suffer initiative fatigue (which fuels resistance) and the attempt to respond to these disconnected efforts in policy and practice contributes to burnout. In order for them to be successful it is necessary for schools to adopt a holistic and integrated approach. Join this interactive session to explore this paradigm shift and new vision for the future of education. Learn from real school examples from across the country where this vision is being put into practice. Explore with your team what this can look like in your own school
