Social-emotional behavior (SEB) equips young people with the skills to lead healthy, productive lives. Schools across the country are investing resources in social-emotional learning (SEL) programs to help students develop these essential skills, but there are barriers that prevent many students of color and other marginalized youth from benefiting from these programs. One of these is how SEB skills are assessed and how resulting data are used to inform SEL and behavioral interventions.

Join Drs. Katie Eklund and Janine Jones for guidance on how you can ensure SEB assessments support positive social-emotional outcomes for all students. During this edWebinar they will share:

  • Strategies for engaging in culturally responsive assessment practices
  • How SEB screening data can be used to consider which students need additional support
  • Best practices for reducing the rates of racial/ethnic disproportionality in behavioral risk identification
  • Considerations around implicit bias and how to ensure students receive equitable support

Join Dr. Eklund and Dr. Jones to gain insights you can apply as you plan your behavior and SEL programming for next school year and learn how to look for ways to continue to address inequities in your system. This edWebinar will be of interest to preK-12 teachers, school and district leaders, school counselors, and school psychologists. There will be time for questions at the end of the presentation.
