As we approach the month of July, school districts and principals are fine-tuning their District and School Improvement Plans. These plans consist of a plethora of quantitative data analyses from the school year. However, now more than ever, it’s important for districts and schools to be cognizant of the quantitative data as well.
The 2021 – 2022 school year will be drastically different as the 2020-2021 school year was inoculated with anxiety, frustration, grief, mental and physical fatigue, and uncertainty. These stress factors will be front and center once the new year begins and there must be a plan to support the social-emotional needs of educational leaders and teachers in school.
Many social-emotional programs are designed to meet the mental wellness needs of students. However, a plan to provide social-emotional support for educational leaders and teachers is critical for schools to achieve at an optimal level.
As a former principal and Director of Curriculum and Instruction Dr. Jackson has always organized from the Affective Domain first. This perspective has been the major ingredient for Dr. Jackson in his recipe for school improvement. Dr. Jackson, Earl Suttle Ph.D., and John Hubbard M.D. have established a proven social-emotional support plan for educational leaders and teachers.
This plan provides strategies on how to win the day, how to create a system/school of positivity, managing stress, responsible decision making, self-care and accountability, social awareness, self-management, and easing the sting of grief.
Below are the two resources for this social-emotional plan. The books are available on Amazon.
