Session Description: This presentation, part of a panel entitled "State-wide Initiatives in New York and Ohio: Creating Positive Learning Environments" featured New York Department of Education representative Mark Barth discussing the New York Social and Emotional Development and Learning (SEDL) Guidelines which encourage school districts to address children’s and adolescents’ affective development in support of their challenging academic preparations. SEDL is part of a united effort outlined in The Children’s Plan, 2008 written by New York’s nine child serving agencies. This Plan is in support of the NY Board of Regent’s Reform Agenda which views social-emotional supports and community services to students as key strategies in turning around low performing schools.
