Seiberling Community Learning Center
Akron Public Schools
Akron, OH
“Seiberling CLC strives for students to come to school, 'Ready To Learn and Achieve Everyday.' In order to learn and achieve, students need coping strategies for self-regulation. Through self-evaluation of various zones, students will learn to identify their feelings and level of alertness, use effective regulation tools, know when and how to use the tools, problem solve positive solutions and understand how their behaviors influence others thoughts and feelings. Class restoration circles will help promote communication and cognizance of others’ perspectives. Parent workshops will provide information about the self-regulation strategies so parents can support/model strategies at home.”
