SEL Awardee

Stratford Public Schools
Stratford, CT
“Student need for social and emotional support will be significantly different during and after the reopening of schools because of COVID-19. A key factor is student disengagement. Being essentially disconnected from school will have adverse effects on these students socially, emotionally and academically. SPS will use staff time to deliver additional SEL-based services to students during late summer and fall of 2020. SEL supports will be focused on high-risk students, especially those who struggled to participate in distance learning in spring 2020. SEL-proficient staff will function as outreach ambassadors and case workers for the families contacted.”
