Families Invited to Panorama Parent Night Webinar

In the spring of 2019, HSE Schools began using the Panorama survey to better understand student’s experience in our schools. This survey helps HSE teachers, administrators and counselors gauge student growth and understanding around social and emotional competencies, which contribute to academic success and increase engagement in the classroom.

The district will be hosting a Parent Night Webinar to share information and answer common questions about the Panorama survey. We will discuss what data is collected and how HSE uses this data to help inform what services and supports are provide to students in order to increase academic success.

The webinar will be held on October 12th at 7:30PM. All HSE Families are invited to attend. Please pre-register for the event here.

If you can’t attend the webinar, the event will be recorded and posted to the HSE Schools website after concluding.

If you would like to learn more about how social-emotional learning can help your student better manage emotion, achieve positive goals, and experience increased success in the classroom, please visit: HSE Schools – What is Social Emotional Learning?
