Date: October 4, 2023, 3:00 - 4:30 PM ET

The webinar will begin with grounding in the current landscape of student supports, which shows disproportionate access for students of color and students with disabilities. Presenters will then walk through a pathway for providing supports to all students, leading into a panel discussion with practitioners who hold different roles in schools. The practitioners will share practical strategies for supporting student’s social, emotional, behavioral, and academic well-being, as well as lessons learned and future directions for student support. This session is the fourth in the Miniseries on Supporting Students’ Social, Emotional, Behavioral, and Academic Well-Being and Success, with a focus on strategies for educators and school-based staff.
