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.
