SEL Awardee

Northern Cass School District 97

Hunter, ND
“To promote healthy emotional wellbeing, all stakeholders need to be educated and participate in the process. We aim to bridge the gap that often exists from our school building to our students’ communities. Through extending our partnership with North Dakota State University (NDSU) to provide family and individual counseling, offering community-based SEL workshops and providing SEL training for staff, Northern Cass will create an innovative program to educate not only the whole child, but the entire community. This will help our communities, families, staff and students experience authentic learning opportunities in evidence-based practices related to wellness, resilience, gratitude, social connection and self-care.”
