Albuquerque, NM
“The NACA Inspired Schools Network (NISN) is a network committed to building a movement of community-led schools supporting Indigenous identity, culture, language and college preparation. Through the development of an SEL Practice Community, NISN is facilitating a learning circle of educators across five schools that are dedicated to utilizing best practices, new ideas and interventions based on the observed needs of diverse students. NISN seeks to inform the implementation of SEL practices that can be effectively delivered through an Indigenous lens, incorporating culturally relevant and holistic supports necessary to promote an academic mindset and healthy behaviors among students.”
