Bristol Township School District Focus on Social Emotional Learning

         Bristol Township School District is focus­ing on Social Emotional Learning and devel­op­ment. This school year start­ed with inten­sive pro­fes­sion­al devel­op­ment for BTSD teach­ers for Responsive Classroom and Trauma Informed Instruction. Teachers and admin­is­tra­tors par­tic­i­pat­ed in inter­ac­tive work­shops and dis­cus­sion. The train­ing pro­vid­ed the District with a com­mon lan­guage and strat­e­gy to sup­port stu­dents in a con­sis­tent way. Educators came togeth­er as a com­mu­ni­ty to cre­ate a safe, pro­duc­tive learn­ing envi­ron­ment for stu­dents in their new school year. Training will con­tin­ue through­out this school year and beyond. We are build­ing our capac­i­ty and exper­tise in sup­port­ing social emo­tion­al devel­op­ment for our stu­dents.  The men­tal health and well being of our stu­dents are cen­tral to our mis­sion and vision.
