Resiliency Survey Resiliency Survey

Research shows that schools play an important role in raising healthy children through the measurement and teaching of social emotional skills.  We are planning on administering a resiliency survey with our students.  Data from this comprehensive assessment tool will give us the ability to flag students who may be in need of intervention.  Further, we would be able to identify students with strong social-emotional development.  In addition, the data provides school counselors with the ability to design, implement and evaluate small group interventions that address specific student needs, as well as opportunities for students to enhance their personal strengths.  Most importantly, this tool allows us to examine the needs of the whole student, in combination with academic and other non-cognitive data.
