Implementation

Elementary
Wakulla County has 4 Elementary Schools and they will all be implementing the Sanford Harmony SEL Curriculum.
School administrators were approached with a description of the SEL program and agreed to implement. The kits are supposed to arrive in Dec. or January. There is currently a training planned in Palatka, which is too far away for us to send teachers. We are asking our PAEC consortium to provide the training closer to our area. We will send a school counselor and teacher from each school to the training. They will rain their school staff. There are also online modules available for PD from Sanford-Harmony.

Middle
Wakulla County has two middle schools and they will both implement Sanford-Harmony in 6th grade and Sandy Hook Promise in 7th and 8th.
