Student Life Committee Update: Nov. 14, 2022

Nov. 14, 2022

The Lindbergh Schools Student Life Board Advisory Committee held its third meeting of the year on Nov. 10, 2022. Committee members discussed the fall social-emotional wellbeing assessments that were given to students K-12. 

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 next assessment will be given in the spring.

Jill Lawson, Executive Director of Assessment and Student Services, showed the results of the screeners with the committee. Students in K-5 were given an assessment through SAEBRS, students at Truman Middle School used Satchel Pulse, Sperreng Middle School students used Panorama. The high school students utilized both Panorama (grades 9 and 12) and Satchel Pulse (grades 10 and 12).

Overall, members discussed the positives and negatives of each assessment. The major difference between the assessments is how the results can be viewed. The group is working on how to make the results easier to read for parents.
