LearnLaunch Workshop: “Strategies to Create a Positive School Culture” (virtual)

Various times

On behalf of the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, LearnLaunch provides virtual professional session workshops, free to any employee of a Massachusetts PK-12 school or district. “In this workshop you will consider ways to continue strengthening your school community’s positive culture in the midst of continued adjustment and response to the ongoing challenges of COVID-19. When students return in January, schools have an opportunity to reinforce positive culture and support student well-being. Our highly interactive virtual workshop offers specific ‘look-fors’ as well as concrete trauma-informed strategies that leaders can put into practice to ensure students feel safe, both emotionally and physically; seen, by adults and by their peers; and soothed, meaning at ease and without heightened anxiety, while at school.”
