Erik Burmeister, Superintendent of Menlo Park City Schools: Making Wellness & SEL a System-Wide Priority Join a school district Superintendent for an interactive conversation to ensure Wellness and SEL goals are met at the larger system level.

How do we set vision, engage stakeholders, determine outcomes, and hold the system accountable to achieve Wellness & SEL goals?
