The Lindbergh Schools Student Life Board Advisory Committee held its first meeting of the year on Sept. 8, 2022. New members were introduced, Dr. Jill Lawson, executive director of assessment and student services, discussed the committee's goals for the year and reviewed social-emotional (SEL) wellbeing screeners for the upcoming school year.
As part of this year's agenda, the committee will discuss the new SEL screeners, student handbook, career development and have an overview of SEL at the end of the year.
The SEL screeners will be utilized twice this school year as part of a pilot program. The new assessment will be used to assess social, emotional and academic skills. The assessments will help identify students who may need intervention, and provide data to help allocate resources throughout the district. Parents will be able to opt out of having their child take the screener. The committee members viewed and discussed the types of questions that will be on each assessment. Grade levels will be getting different assessments and as part of the pilot program, different assessments are being utilized from different companies.
