  • SEL in APS – Year 1

    During the spring of 2016 the Random Acts of Kindness (RAK) Foundation visited four Atlanta Public Schools’ campuses to capture the culmination of the first SEL implementation year. During their visit, they interviewed principals, teachers, students, bus drivers, parents, grandparents and district level SEL staff. There was a wealth of video footage, and a great story to tell. The RAK foundation generously produced the piece below, at no cost to APS, and gifted us the final project. Please take a look at our first year journey!
