Sharing and Learning with CASEL and Chicago Public Schools

On April 19, a contingent from NYC DOE comprised of Superintendents, FSC Executive Directors, Central Office staff and CBOs led by Community School Executive Director Chris Caruso visited Chicago Public Schools to learn more about their efforts around Social and Emotional Learning [SEL]. This visit was a part of a Wallace Grant that NYC DOE [Community Schools] was awarded and part of larger efforts to secure a 3 year grant. The group got a chance to sit in on SEL coordinator training, visit schools and speak with experts from Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning [CASEL] around the work in Chicago. The experiences and learnings from this trip will no doubt inform and influence the current work related to the Wallace Grant and future efforts related to SEL.
