Social and Emotional Health
As we begin to prepare for the 2020-2021 school year with COVID-19 in mind, balancing the physical safety needs and social/emotional needs of our students remains top priority in Midlothian ISD.
In order to meet the social and emotional needs of our students, professional learning opportunities in trauma-informed practices and social emotional learning will be provided to staff. Ongoing Face-to-Face and Virtual Learning opportunities will be provided following the CASEL's core SEL competencies such as: self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationship skills and responsible decision-making.
Additionally, counseling support for students and staff will be provided in a variety of service options. Mentoring programs and community partnerships will be included to support the social/emotional needs of students.
This site contains videos, resource links, and much more for our parents and students as we partner in the social and emotional health of all.
This has been a challenging few months for all of us and we probably have experienced a range of emotions during this time. Learn what you and your family can do to help each other out by watching this video.
