About this Event

Students need more than just academic skills to be successful in college and career. While they do need strong content knowledge in core subjects, they also require a wide array of non-cognitive skills, behaviors, and attitudes to help them meet the unknown challenges of the future. Students who are experiencing trauma, poverty, hunger, anxiety, or bullying are unlikely to perform well academically. Learn what school districts in Connecticut and across the country are doing to promote the social-emotional health of students and how that is translating to improved academic outcomes.Teachers will identify strategies and programs that can be adapted to suit the unique circumstances of the students in their school or district.
