Bridging the Gap Between Social Emotional Learning and Suspension and Expulsion

Please note that due to some technical difficulties, the first few moments of this session were not recorded. We apologize for the inconvenience. Bridges, Ogden School District's Alternative Placement Program, has always committed to serving ALL students. This year, the Bridges program went through a systems renewal process integrating social-emotional learning into all dimensions of the classroom which led to a recommittment of serving students and families who are most at need. Bridges serves a specific population of students who are in need of additional resources to fully access academic and school settings. Our program intensely integrates cognitive, behavior, and social-emotional learning into all facets of the classroom and therapeutic sessions. This immersed approach allows each student to reimagine their purpose in life and how this connects to the opportunities offered through their boundary schools.
