In Missouri, the School District of University City  Board of Education recently passed a landmark Board resolution to “Humanize School Climate Through Restorative Practices and Social Emotional Learning.” The Board resolution details practices, timelines and goals to enhance and uplift relationships for all members of the District community and give students a voice and a greater sense of inclusion and empowerment to shape their community for the better.

Join two School District of University City leaders – Gary Spiller, executive director of the Office of Student Support and Innovative Services, and Nancy Cambria, director of communications – as they discuss the district’s use of social-emotional practices, prioritization of youth voice, and its emphasis on supporting the health and well-being of all children.
