Washoe County School District

  • Integrating SEL with Common Core State Standards

    As part of a central strategy for improving its graduation rate, Washoe County School District (WCSD) integrates SEL into their Common Core instructional framework and professional development. With training and support from the district, each principal and leadership team implements SEL in the context of their school.


“We needed to build capacity creatively… modifying job descriptions to include SEL and drawing upon our teacher leaders.” Trish Shaffer, Coordinator for Multi-Tiered Systems of Support (MTSS) for the Washoe County School District (WCSD).
