SmartLabs and COVID Recovery

It's no secret that students were severely impacted by COVID. While hundreds of District 6 students attended a very robust summer school program, they will still be playing catchup during the 2021-22 school year. Unfortunately, schoolwork was not the only thing that was negatively impacted for students - their emotional intelligence was as well.

With the ongoing challenge to meet all instructional minutes in a school day, it can be near impossible to find time to dedicate to explicit instruction of social and emotional skills. An integrated approach may be the solution to achieve both academic and social-emotional success.
