    The Roadmaps for Social-Emotional Well-Being & Academic Success were designed by educators and mental health professionals to support the return to school following a particularly turbulent time in history. We trust that all parents and all school staff - teachers, administrators, counselors, and support staff- will find helpful tools and resources.

    The Parent/Caregiver (Español) edition gives parents/caregivers tools to support their child’s resilience: sense of safety, connectedness, self-efficacy, community efficacy, ability to be calm and hope.

    The Educators edition helps school site personnel support students and staff wellness and resilience through a plethora of classroom-ready lessons, activities, videos, and resources.

    These resources can be found by clicking the links above, or on the Student Health and Human Services homepage.
