District Leadership Roundtable

Know What Works: Measuring the Academic Return on Investment of Social, Emotional, and Behavioral Supports for Students

In an environment of rising student needs, many school districts are implementing programs designed to improve and expand social, emotional, and behavioral supports for students. Anecdotal feedback is often very positive, and yet district leaders often have the sense that they are trying lots of programs without really knowing which ones are having an impact. 

Facing tight budgets, it's critical that districts implement effective measurement systems to know which programs are both cost-effective and making a measurable difference for students.

Join DMGroup and SouthWest Metro Intermediate District 288 on February 20th in Shakopee, Minnesota for a District Leadership Roundtable that will gather superintendents and other district leaders for an interactive discussion of best practices for improving, expanding, and measuring the impact of your school district's social, emotional, and behavioral supports.
