Creating Daily Opportunities to Build Equitable, Safe and Supportive Schools Through Creative Expression
The term safe and supportive schools has been sprinkled across our headlines and news feeds, but is it another buzzword or here to stay? The term is much more than reactive legislation and strategies in response to school tragedies. The idea of wanting equity, safety, and support in schools is not new, nor should it be anything less than a priority across classrooms, schools, and districts.
In this presentation, we will:
Define the pillars of an equitable, safe and supportive school.
Describe the relationship between social emotional learning and an equitable, safe and supportive school environment.
Identify and organize action steps for creating and sustaining equitable, safe and supportive schools.
Also included: “Building Equitable, Safe and Supportive Schools” white paper, which discusses:
What Is an Equitable, Safe, and Supportive School?
Pillars of Equitable, Safe, and Supportive Schools.
Why Is an Equitable, Safe, and Supportive School Important?
Classroom, schoolwide, and districtwide actionable steps towards being trauma-informed, culturally sensitive, equitable, safe, and supportive.
