(WEBINAR) Using School Climate Data to Meet Student Needs
February 5 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EST
On February 5th, the Learning Policy Institute (LPI) and the National Urban League (NUL) will host a webinar entitled, “Using School Climate Data to Meet Student Needs.” Under the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), states are measuring, collecting, and reporting on a variety of school climate and social and emotional learning (SEL) indicators to address student needs and progress towards meeting those needs. With all of these data, how can districts and schools be responsive to the identified needs and opportunities?
In this webinar, panelists will share resources designed to support state and district leaders, teachers, principals, advocates, parents, and youth as they use data available under ESSA to create positive and inclusive learning environments that meet the social, emotional, and academic development of each and every student, including:
- How are states measuring school climate and SEL under their ESSA accountability systems? What additional measures could be adopted at the local level to ensure that student needs are met?
- How can districts and schools take advantage of high-leverage equity measures in their state accountability and local systems to close gaps in educational opportunities and outcomes?
- What are the implications for teacher and leader practice in order to be responsive to inequities and needs identified by these data? What are the implications for district and school policy?
- How can we engage parents and caregivers, as the experts on their own children, to ensure that resources and programming are both research-based and relevant to local communities and cultures?
The webinar will highlight NUL’s focused efforts supporting how students grow and thrive, and LPI’s report, Educating the Whole Child: Improving School Climate to Support Student Success, which identifies key policies, priorities, and strategies to develop productive school environments. Learning Heroes will highlight insights from their national study, Developing Life Skills in Children, A Roadmap for Communicating with Parents. Speakers will answer questions from the webinar registrants and audience.
