Vermont SEL Leaders PLC

Join Vermont's network of emerging SEL leaders.

Over the past two decades, the field of social-emotional learning (SEL) has rapidly evolved and expanded. 

Not only is SEL a top strategic priority, but it’s also an emerging profession. School communities are recognizing the importance of building human systems that protect time for SEL and make it a priority. Many districts in Vermont have created full-time central office positions focused on SEL; others are building entire divisions or offices of social-emotional learning.

In an effort to break down inter-district silos and help collectively advance the field of SEL across our state, the Vermont SEL Leaders PLC hopes to serve as a dedicated monthly space for district- and/or school-based professionals in Vermont who are in roles focused (broadly) on social and emotional learning to:

  1. Form community and build new networks between school communities;
  2. Learn from each other by sharing insights, best practices, and lessons learned, and;
  3. Hear from leaders across various state governmental agencies about important policy updates related to health and wellness. 

This professional learning community meets (virtually) on a monthly basis and many of the PLC sessions can be counted towards professional development credits. If you are interested in joining or learning more, please contact our PLC Co-Coordinators: Elyse Norton and Marla Goldstein.
