SEL Awardee

Kevin Kerr

Dallas Independent School District
Dallas, TX
“Dallas ISD wants to empower our students to move the SEL needle. We will train up to 100 middle and high school students to be advocates and trainers around social and emotional learning. These students will attend a one-day training to learn, collaborate and create a SEL session that they will share with campuses across the district. Student voice will be brought into our work to create buy-in for teachers, administrators and central office staff. Additionally, students will be leaders on their own campuses, joining their campus SEL steering committees to make an impact on their own community.”
