SEL Awardee

Mt. Adams School District
White Swan, WA
“The Mt. Adams School District SEL project is designed to facilitate the development of a learning environment that fosters the social and emotional growth of its unique and diverse student body. We intend to achieve this goal by deepening teacher understanding of historical trauma, intersectional student identity and the role local values, practices and traditions play in learning. Specifically, the Mt. Adams School District SEL Equity Team will organize a Gathering of Native Americans (GONA), offer an initial Teaching for Equity and Justice training and provide ongoing teacher training and support centered around race, gender, sexuality, equity and culturally-responsive and trauma-informed practice.”
