VTSCA Ad-Hoc Committees
VTSCA SEL Task Force: From June to November 2020, VTSCA put together and supported an SEL Task Force on School Re-entry led by facilitator and U-32 Director of School Counseling, Lisa Laplante. This task force was focused on making recommendations regarding social-emotional learning and well-being as we considered school re-entry related to COVID. This task force provided recommendations to the AOE related to re-entry in addition to providing detailed resources to the VTSCA membership to use regarding SEL and reopening. The VTSCA SEL Task Force had membership representation from across the state and at all levels PK-12.
