SFUSD Social Emotional Learning (SEL)/Culture-Climate Survey

Please click on this link to take the District survey: 

STUDENT: surveys.panoramaed.com/sfusd

STAFF: surveys.panoramaed.com/sfusd/1989040291

The district has set a goal to get 80% of parents, students and teachers responding to the district Social Emotional Learning (SEL)/Culture-Climate Survey.

As part of the district work with the new Index and the districts own Strategic Plan and Vision 2025, the indicators around SEL and Culture and Climate reinforce many years of good work around recognizing the important role these factors play in our students’ school experience.  They also provide an important avenue for feedback from our families.

You are urged to take the survey so your feedback can be "heard".

Author David Lubar (Vampire Weenies & other novels) writes:

Litweaver has launched. In briefest terms, think of it as Netflix for your classroom. In longer and better terms, imagine that the man who created the contemporary YA anthology, Don Gallo, helped assemble short stories, poem, essays, and plays from 50 well known authors. Imagine that you could share those stories with your students, make notes, pass out assignments, and access supplemental material. That, in a nutshell, is Litweaver. Please check it out. And please share the link with your colleagues. It is very cool, and very new. http://www.litweaver.com/
