Cross-Districts Learning Events

Our district partners in the Collaborating Districts Initiative (CDI) have created a community of learners who convene regularly to share best practices on SEL. These events offer numerous opportunities for educators, policymakers, and community leaders to expand their understanding of SEL implementation, meet colleagues working on similar activities and innovative approaches, hear from experts in various aspects of SEL, and visit CDI schools to observe SEL firsthand.

Reports, presentations, videos, and photos from these events are available online at the links below.
