As you may already be aware, growing our students’ social-emotional (“SEL”) skills is an important goal for our school. As part of these activities, we survey students and ask them to reflect on their own mindsets and approaches to learning. The data we get back helps us continue to identify opportunities for growth and development with our students.
We partner with a leader in the SEL space, Panorama Education. Panorama develops tools to empower schools and districts to learn about students’ self-perceptions, better understand student experiences in their learning environment, and identify opportunities to enhance support of teachers and counselors as they implement SEL programs.
Panorama’s SEL survey is grouped into three categories:
· Student competencies
· Student supports and environment
· Teacher skills and perspectives
These surveys will help shape the Lake Washington School District’s approach to supporting teachers’ work in service of the whole student.
The survey will take place during U-Knighted on Monday, October 12th. If you have any questions about the survey administration, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
We appreciate your partnership!
