Lakota: Focus on Meeting the Social & Emotional Needs of Virtual Learning Students


“Nothing replaces seeing the students face to face all day, every day,” said Lori Brown, Lakota’s Director of Student Service. “But the good news is that everything we have wanted to do to meet the social/emotional needs of our VLO students, we have found a way to do it.”

There are online peer groups, specific check-in times or lunches with counselors, virtual tools for mindfulness, support sessions for parents, a new junior high mental health and suicide prevention program – and these are just a few of ways that Lakota is addressing this important topic.
