SCUSD’s Chief of Staff Koua Franz was one of eight school leaders from around the country honored last week by the Collaborative for Academic, Social and Emotional Learning (CASEL).

Franz received CASEL’s Mary Utne O’Brien Award for advancing social and emotional learning. SCUSD is one of eight districts partnering with CASEL through its Collaborating Districts Initiative to improve the climate and culture of schools through role modeling and instruction in five social and emotional competencies. SCUSD received a three-year grant from the NoVo Foundation to support this work.
