Several New York State leaders visited the Center Moriches School District on Dec. 1 to discuss the district’s social emotional learning programming. New York State Senator Shelley B. Mayer, the Chair of the Committee on Education, was joined by State Senator John Liu and State Senator Dean Murray as they met with district administrators.
The Center Moriches School District is a trailblazer in the state for its districtwide SEL efforts. Superintendent of Schools Dr. Ron Masera is a member of the Suffolk County School Superintendent’s Association’s Legislative Committee and holds a dedicated focus on the importance of social emotional learning, addressing learning loss and gaining the funding to support these causes.
The New York State senators got a firsthand look at the district’s Pre-K-12 continuum of social emotional learning work through a video and in-depth discussions. They stepped inside several middle school classrooms and visited the “Goal Getters” program at the high school.
