SEL Awardee

Hadley Public Schools

Hadley, MA
“The Hadley Public Schools place social and emotional learning (SEL) at the center of our educational practice. Our expanded SEL program will foster academic success and the development of students’ sense of autonomy, agency and social justice. The project integrates social justice and equity learning into district schools and classrooms through the research-based practice of Intergroup Dialogue. Intergroup Dialogues are a series of small group, co-facilitated, structured experiences that encourage dialogue. Intergroup Dialogue can prepare our students to participate in civic engagement while providing a common language and starting point from which to address our different identities in constructive ways.”
