As equity leaders, our job is to ensure that the adults who serve students are inspired and supported so they may deliver the best education available. But with so many competing priorities, how can we ensure we’re doing the best we can for our students as we navigate the road back from school closures?
View the informative webinar with funding expert Susan Gentz. During this one-hour session, Susan will dive into the various funding streams available through the new stimulus, how to access these dollars, and how the funds may be used. There will also be time for you to ask Susan any questions you have so your district can make the most of these education dollars.
While the holiday season typically brings feelings of joy, this time of year can be difficult for many. In this webinar from our Student Wellness Series, you’ll learn about causes of holiday blues and coping mechanisms, hear how one superintendent keeps students safe during the holidays, and see examples of struggling students who were identified by Gaggle so they could get the support they needed.
Students have been through a lot since the outbreak of the pandemic. School buildings closed their doors, quarantine orders kept them from friends and loved ones, and pandemic-related stresses—including anxieties about health, academic struggles, and unsafe home situations—have been overwhelming for many. It truly is a surreal time for our students.
During the 2019–20 school year, Gaggle flagged 64,000 references to suicide or self-harm in students’ online activity. Students may turn to cutting, a form of self-harm, as a way to release their pain and emotions. Teenage cutting is quite common in today’s world and is often used for relief, self-expression, or as a response to trauma, such as abuse.
