Elementary & Secondary Activities
Please find below a link to SEL and CP&I Advisory/Homeroom Activities for your teachers to use with their students. These resources were developed by the SEL, and CP&I team alongside teachers and are specific for each level to ensure age-appropriateness and to help cultivate an environment of belonging and connectedness, in order to optimize the learning experience.
We encourage teachers to modify, as needed, to meet the appropriate and developmental needs of their students and community. Your campus staff can find ideas, strategies, and routines that inform and support the climate and culture of your classroom community throughout the day.
Advisory/Homeroom Activities for the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th 9-Weeks will be provided through a similar Principals Weekly when they are completed.
Student Equity Council: Student & Sponsor Selection | DUE SEPT 15
Austin ISD Student Equity Council is a districtwide group of 60 students representing our 15 high schools. SEC members regularly interact with campus and district leadership as well as the school board to ensure equitable educational experiences across the district.
The Office of School Leadership is counting on principals to select sponsors and students by September 15, 2021. We ask that you please complete the Austin ISD Student Equity Council sign-up form selecting your campus-based sponsor and four representative students to participate in Austin ISD’s Student Equity Council throughout the school year.
There is a detailed description of the desired student profile at the top of the form. Principals and/or sponsors should select their 4 student representatives based on the description. NOTE: Students who participated last year and opt to continue should be given priority, as their experience will be valuable to new Student Equity Council members.

Resources for No Place for Hate Activity Planning
As you work with your No Place for Hate student coalition to plan this school year’s activities, the resources linked below maybe helpful:
Virtual Mini Lessons Start Conversations
Consider using one of the virtual mini lessons, linked below, with students to start conversations about identity and interrupting bias.
- Pyramid of Hate - Student Edition helps students understand how bias can escalate quickly from biased thinking to acts of bias, reinforcing systemic discrimination and ultimately acts of violence.
- Identity Iceberg – Student Edition explores the concept of identity and the importance of going “below the waterline” to change and avoid stereotypes and identity-based bias.
- What is Bias? – Student Edition looks at the difference between explicit and implicit bias and how to challenge it in our everyday lives.
Check out the newest No Place for Hate Coordinator Handbook and Resource Guide. It features Austin area scholar & educator Bavu Blakes on page 9! Check out his advice as you consider how best to mobilize student leaders and leverage the No Place for Hate framework on your campus!
