Supporting Effective Districtwide Implementation

Are you coordinating a districtwide Second Step implementation? If so, the Second Step Leadership Institute is an opportunity for you to learn directly from our experts about systemic implementation strategies and collaborate with peers from around the country. From day one, the dynamic exchange of ideas will generate valuable suggestions you can put to use in your schools. A full year of interactions with a professional learning community dedicated to social-emotional learning will keep you inspired and connected.

“It has been motivating to hear from colleagues around the nation what they are doing with the Second Step program. I’ve gotten great ideas and information to take back with me. I’m going to go back energized!”
Lucinda Mills, Pupil Adjustment Counselor, Boston Public Schools
