Event description
Creating a Culture of Wellness in Your High School: Involving Students and Using the Tools You Already Have

About this Event

The VTSS Secondary Schools Symposium - March 25, 2020

High schools have always been tasked with supporting students with academic success. Our young people today face challenges above and beyond the rigor of their academic programs. As more is learned about the impact mental wellness plays in learning, behavior and social well-being, it becomes necessary for schools to include instruction of social/emotional/behavioral skills.

We know that in schools where VTSS is implemented with fidelity, the learning environment is safer, more positive, and provides consistent messaging resulting in a more predictable experience for students and adults. VTSS serves as a framework for aligning the multiple initiatives that are taking place in our schools and can be ‘the conduit’ for promoting a culture of wellness. High school students will share their awareness of the need for creating a culture of wellness having been given the opportunity to explore their own school-level data.

Speaker: Dr. Patti Hershfeldt

Co-Director, Center for Social Behavior Support

Old Dominion University

In addition to this important keynote from Dr. Hershfeldt, teams will have opportunities to learn from other national leaders in the field around topics such as; student voice, coaching, advanced tiers, supporting student behavior and much more!
