SEL Consulting for Systems Transformation

CREATE provides broad consulting to districts and agencies to assist districts, schools, and agencies in transformation that includes support new policies and practices to nurture healthy, caring schools with strong relational leadership that supports students and well as educators. CREATE partners with district or agency teams to formulate plans and coach administrators to introduce and supplement SEL programs, policies and practices currently within districts and support readiness for change. Support is also provided to improve the quality of implementation plan for, and achieve, sustainability.

Workshops include introductory and advanced SEL training for teachers, leadership development within an SEL framework for administrators, SEL informational seminars for school boards, and consulting on assessment and evaluation of SEL outcomes. Team building seminars are offered as well.

CREATE’s mission is to facilitate transformative change for school systems to ensure that schools are a safe and caring space for educators, scholars, and community members. All members of the school staff and student population deserve and need a school environment that reflects a sense of calm, order, and compassion. CREATE supports school leaders and teachers to explore social emotional readiness as an essential part of the beginning of transformation for schools. This includes evaluating what is working for schools, developing effective plans to support schools to implement what is needed for all members of the school community. CREATE is guided by the practice of listening carefully to the voices of administrators, teachers, and students voice as part of the transformative process of creating a caring school community.
