The Regional Office of Education for Bond, Fayette, Effingham, Montgomery and Christian Counties is implementing a new pilot program this year which involves a social emotional learning curriculum. Angela Reeter, a Program Director in Educational Services for the ROE says they had received several requests for trauma training which began the work with program.
And after putting plans into motion for the three-year pilot program, Reeter says they decided to begin the program in the ROE’s Alternative Schools located in Vandalia and Effingham where they could study the results of the program first-hand.
With just a few months into the current school year, Reeter says they have been able to see positive changes in students. We will hear more from Reeter about the program coming u Monday on Newscenter.
