SEL Awardee

Washoe County School District

Reno, NV
“SEL holds great promise for helping students graduate on-time and college and career ready, but only if it reflects the diverse array of cultures, values, and languages represented across the student population. WCSD’s Nuestro Aprendizaje Social y Emocional ('Our Social and Emotional Learning'; NASE) Project will establish a cohort of 5th-12th grade students who are English Learners from high poverty schools to investigate the cultural and linguistic responsiveness of WCSD’s SEL practices, assessments and lessons. Recommendations provided through this student voice project have potential to improve the delivery and impact of its SEL curriculum for WCSD’s fastest growing student demographic.”
