SEL Awardee

Neshoba County School District

Philadelphia, MS
“Neshoba County School district’s 2018-2019 SEL project will build on the hands-on training and research on Choctaw culture from our 2017-2018 project. Our Native American students, with assistance from our general student population, in grades K-4 through 12 will compile their research material into a student-produced book about the Mississippi Band of Choctaws. Videos about their tribe’s arts, crafts, history, language, and folklore will be student created for the school webpage and a YouTube channel. The focus of these two project is to strengthen student understanding of 'Choctaw Self-determination' and share that with the global community.”
