LITCHFIELD SCHOOL DISTRICT OFFERS
NO-COST PARENT TRAINING TO HEIGHTEN SOCIAL EMOTIONAL LEARNING
LITCHFIELD DISTRICT SCHOOLS, Ariz. – In support of its strong commitment to social-emotional learning, Litchfield Elementary School District invites parents and caring adults to no-cost parenting training to learn Conscious Discipline, a comprehensive, self-regulation program that integrates social emotional learning, school culture, and discipline. It helps educators and parents build schools based on safety, connection and problem solving. Conscious Discipline is based on brain research and how that dictates behavior. This program helps adults understand their own brain states first so that they can create safe and loving environments that our children need to access their highest levels of learning. Following its successful schoolwide implementation of this award-winning framework, Litchfield School District seeks to partner with parents in helping children self-regulate their emotions and strengthen their relationships at school and home.
Highly-trained teachers at every school in the District will present interactive monthly trainings where adults will study the three brain states that drive self-regulation and decision-making. Fun games and expert presenters will help adults learn techniques to remain composed during parenting challenges and make brain-building choices to help children remain emotionally connected.
True to its century-old history of educational excellence, Litchfield Elementary School District is committed to creating a safe and positive learning environment for all students. Conscious Discipline reduces bullying and violence by giving children a sense of confidence and connectedness. Together, parents and educators in our community can ensure social-emotional development for more than 11,000 students in 15 schools.
Parents and other caring adults are welcome at all of the following trainings. Consistent attendance is encouraged to develop a foundation of understanding, but drop-in attendees will also glean valuable lessons about how to help children feel safe and confident so that they can focus on academic achievement and overall success. No registration required. Watch for calendar updates and learn more in the “Parent Resources” section at www.lesd.k12.az.us.
