Student Life Committee Update: Nov. 11, 2021

Nov. 11, 2021

The Student Life Board Advisory Committee held its third meeting of the 2021-22 school year Thursday, Nov. 11. The group's main focus during the meeting was reviewing social-emotional well-being assessments for students.

Dr. Jill Lawson, executive director of assessment and student services, led the discussion about Lindbergh's efforts to assess the social-emotional well-being of students. Currently, the district has a three-tier system of prevention, intervention and remediation based on teacher assessments. Dr. Lawson said that the district is looking into creating a new assessment that students would take themselves, which would help identify the appropriate tier for each student.

The new assessment would be used for students in grades 3-12. Committee members discussed the benefits and drawbacks of student self-assessment.

The committee's next meeting is scheduled for Thursday, Jan. 13.
