AASA Social and Emotional Learning Cohort


 The Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) Cohort is a groundbreaking initiative designed to meet the needs of the “total child”.  The SEL Cohort will involve a minimum of 30 districts from across the country. Beginning this spring, the cohort will gather twice a year and develop case studies, action plans, resources and other publications that will be shared with AASA members and other administrators.

Three outstanding superintendents will serve as SEL chairs. They are: 

 Traci-Davis  Michael F. Rice  Janet-Robinson
Traci Davis, Washoe County School District, Reno, Nev. Michael Rice, Kalamazoo Public Schools, Kalamazoo, Mich.  Janet Robinson, Stratford Public Schools, Stratford, Conn. 

If you’ve never participated in one of AASA’s leadership programs, below is what one member said about being a part of our Digital Consortium:

It means the world to be in the presence of so many risk takers who are leaders in the field of innovation as it relates to technology. To be among the company of the best and brightest is truly a blessing.

– Marlon Styles, superintendent, Middletown City School District, Middletown, Ohio  

We’re looking for like-minded leaders who are innovators and risk takers in the field of SEL. No one can argue this is one of the most critical issues in public education. If you think you can make a positive contribution to this new cohort, please apply today.  For questions, please contact Mort Sherman, AASA associate executive director, Leadership Network at 703.875.0726 or msherman@aasa.org.
