Collaborative Learning Academy (CLA)

Students can’t learn — teachers can’t teach — when they don’t feel safe, seen, and heard. Our emphasis is on helping school leaders understand the science of trauma and resilience and how we can build the individual capabilities that help each student and staff flourish.

The overall goal of the year-long learning journey is to increase capacity within school buildings to lead, implement, and sustain a trauma informed social emotional learning environment within their own school.  Woven into the delivery of the CLA is intentional networking and trust-building between/among participating teams to strengthen the web of local education leaders and their shared learning of social emotional learning (SEL) and the interconnection with equity, resiliency, protective factors, and trauma informed schools. 

In addition, the CLA provides an environment for school leaders to learn new information, practice skills, give and receive coaching, and build confidence and capacity for school teams to return and lead trauma informed SEL integration within their schools/districts.
