Transforming learning environments to support whole child approaches to education is essential to meeting the full scope of students’ social, emotional, and academic needs and to prepare them to succeed in our global economy. Shifting towards a whole child approach has far-reaching implications for our education system and requires practice and policy approaches informed by the science of learning and development (SoLD). This webinar series explores the various elements of whole child policy featured in the Whole Child Policy Toolkit and shares insights from state and district policymakers who have engaged in efforts to shift toward whole child education.

This webinar focuses on the strategies and lessons learned from experts and state leaders who have taken on this work. Experts will discuss actions states can take to ensure resources are invested equitably and efficiently for whole child design.
