March Newsletter- Special Edition: Response to COVID-19
Our Mission: SEL4IA exists to support building capacity for districts to sustain social emotional learning practices by advocating for legislation, building local and statewide awareness and promoting community to ensure equitable outcomes for students across Iowa.
SEL4IA is with you as we try our best to navigate our current, very unprecedented circumstances due to COVID-19. As educators and as parents, we understand that we are all trying our best to give ourselves and our kids what is needed to thrive in these challenging times. SEL4IA has compiled a variety of resources for educators who are hoping to grow in their own SEL and for families trying to embed SEL into their day.
Resources here are designed for educators who want to take steps to enhance their own social emotional competencies.
SEL Resources for Families
SEL4IA has provided a variety of resources that are both on and offline that you can easily do at home. The goal of these resources is to provide you with a sense of connectedness to each other as well as to build skills that help each family member cope with these uncertain times.
