Why High-Yield Social-Emotional Learning Programs Are Essential to the Safety and Security of Districts

In order to ensure the safety and well-being of students, it's imperative that schools tie in social-emotional learning programs. These programs help students better understand how to manage their emotions, consider the feelings of others, and learn important social skills. They also help alert educators to any students who may be struggling with depression, bullying, unhealthy relationships, or other issues. 

View the recording as Dr. Joe Erardi, a recently retired superintendent from Newtown, CT, shares lessons learned from the December 2012 tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School. This interactive session will include best proactive practices, the importance of high-level partnerships pertaining to safety, and the critical need to have K-12 social-emotional learning programming understood by all within the district. Viewers will gain a sound understanding of proactive initiatives to maximize school safety. In addition, all will better understand strategies regarding complex students. 

Dr. Erardi was named outstanding school superintendent in CT in 2017, and was recognized by both the University of Hartford and Central CT State University as the 2016 School Administrator of the Year. Presently, Dr. Erardi coordinates the American Association of School Administrators (AASA) safety website, as he served as an executive board member of AASA for three years.
