WHERE “Surviving Schools” TRANSFORM into “Thriving Schools”
“Surviving Schools” existed long before the pandemic. These schools struggle to close the achievement gap each year as they shovel their way through discipline referrals, poor learning outcomes, lack of attendance, increased dropout rates, and low morale.
“Surviving Schools” know their school culture and climate is suffering and staff and students’ well-being is on the line. Yet, they remain stuck in patterns that further drive the cracks of inequity, lack of engagement, and worrisome mental health.
As schools begin to rethink how they will transform into a “Thriving School”, they are met with inspiring and hopeful solutions- one of which is social-emotional learning.
But buyer beware, not all veteran SEL programs can evolve your “Surviving School” into a “Thriving School” where all children succeed.
In fact, if not implemented thoughtfully with a trauma-informed, equity-driven lens, your social-emotional learning initiative may fizzle out like an old soda leaving staff, students, and families even more overwhelmed and anxious.
“Thriving Schools” know that one of the first places to begin this transformative journey is elevating Adult SEL-CASEL’s Focus Area 2.
This is a critical yet often overlooked step where staff and families are armed with the SEL skills and mindsets they require to effectively teach, model, and shape these skills in our youth.
For many “Surviving Schools”, they will skip this step for reasons like:
- We don’t have enough time.
- There’s too much on our plates already.
- There are more pressing issues to address.
- It’s simply not my job to teach SEL.
- We don’t have the expertise to be effective.
And while we completely understand these concerns, this way of thinking keeps an aspiring
“Thriving School” a remaining “Surviving School” with:
- Lack of staff buy-in
- Increase in sick days and substitutes resulting from staff overwhelm
- Higher teacher and administrator turn-over
- Increase in student disruptive behaviors, bullying, and trauma
- Contaminated school culture and climate that lacks student engagement and connectedness
- Alarming rates of reduced attendance and dropout rates
- Increase in the achievement gap and resulting inequities in education
