The National Commission on Student-Centered, Equity-Focused Education—a collective of superintendents, as well as thought leaders in education, community and philanthropy convened by AASA, The School Superintendents Association—recently released their vision for how education must change to improve outcomes for ALL learners. 

Listen to Commission member 2018 Illinois and National Superintendent of the Year and High School District 214 Superintendent, Dr. David Schuler, as he outlines this critically important redesign work. Sacramento City USD Principal, Vanessa Buitrago, and Round Lake Area School District SEL and Student Development Coordinator, Jennifer Wells, also share how their current work in SEL is helping them move closer to educational equity and realizing this vision. 

The presenters share:

  • The three essential components of systemic redesign
  • How to achieve a relationships-based culture that is whole-learner focused and future driven
  • What a social-emotional and cognitive growth model is, and the role of data, planning, learning and evidence of learning
  • The role of student-directed, adaptive programs in meeting every student’s unique SEL needs
  • Why and how to begin to unlock resources in the areas of MTSS, early education, creating a diverse educator pipeline and tech access for all

School and district administrators learn concrete steps they can take now to better meet each student’s unique needs, as well as how to use real-time data and innovative tools to improve culture and climate, academics, and behavior. 

This edWeb podcast is of interest to superintendents, school and district leaders of preK through high school grade levels, and those involved in social-emotional learning and equity work.
