Professional Development Strengthens After-School Learning
Posted 2/24/23

Recently, NVUSD's Expanded Learning Opportunities Program hosted a professional development training for afterschool program staff. Over 60 participants from the Napa Country Office of Education, Boys and Girls Club, and Napa Valley Unified School District, who work in after-school programs at our Elementary and Middle Schools, were able to fill their toolbelt with strategies to implement Toolbox on Social-Emotional Learning (also called SEL), Creating Ecosystems of Carino and Developmentally Appropriate Practices for TK/Kindergarten students.

Training our out-of-school-time staff to reinforce strategies that are taught during the school day is just the first step in promoting quality after-school programming. Take a peek and perhaps you will spot a familiar face.
