The School-Connect Institute directly prepares participants to implement School-Connect in their classrooms and provide staff training in their school or district.

This engaging 2-day training provides an overview of social and emotional learning (SEL); curriculum concepts, strategies and implementation options; practice in facilitating student-driven discussions and engagement strategies; and links to academic motivation and skills. Participants consistently rate this interactive training highly and say it increases their confidence, enthusiasm, and commitment to SEL and academic success for their students. School-Connect recommends that school teams attend to better facilitate implementation in their school or district.

Institute Facilitator

R. Keeth Matheny, high school teacher and co-author of School-Connect, Third Edition, is lead trainer for the Institute. Keeth will share how his innovative high school course has helped reduce freshman failures by 41% and discipline referrals by 71% at Austin High School over a four year period. Keeth is a highly engaging presenter, and his trainings receive consistently high ratings by participants.
