How will Satchel Pulse work for the issues in my district?
You’ll use Skills to help identify behavior issues and mental health struggles before they become a problem. The self-assessment allows students to share their views on their social emotional skills levels, leading to potential triggers for staff to address. Once data is gathered, we will provide targeted resources in the areas they most need strengthening. All while being tracked and monitored, allowing for proper measurement and growth.
To help students proactively build social emotional skills that help them verbalize their needs, and recognize when they may require someone else to intervene is helping them advocate for themselves and take ownership of their well being or take ownership of their mental health. They’ll get the insight to understand why they may feel a certain way and the vocabulary to assist them when asking for help. All while lessening referrals and freeing up staff to be proactive in teaching the skills needed to support positive behavior choices for students.
When you don't have the resources to teach social-emotional skills, you'll use our Coaching service to provide virtual lessons to your students. Our experts will teach your students while they're supervised by their teachers, who will benefit from seeing social-emotional learning being modeled by our specialists. The most significant impacts of Coaching are the growth and use of skills learned during the sessions throughout other areas.
How using Skills in your district will help proactively lessen student behavioral and mental health issues
The universal screener in Skills is quick and easy to use, provides the most intuitive data and can be completed multiple times a year. Using this solution teaches children to be proactive in voicing and expressing what they need through our student self-assessment. The assessment and teacher screener are recommended to begin screening at the start of the school year, however, it can be implemented at anytime.
During any point in the year, Coaching will be helpful, as it provides weekly structure and accountability for your students. When teachers and students are both practicing the skills they're learning, they are able to apply them to real-life scenarios that may arise inside or outside the classroom.
Using these tools can help lessen referrals, and other behavior issues, before they become a problem, as students will start interacting more successfully with peers, staff, and the wider community.
