Guidance and Counseling Facilitator Nwakaego Oriji awarded 14 GISD campuses – including two in Sachse – with Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) School of Excellence awards.
The award had tiers of winners: bronze, silver and gold. Oriji said the criteria to win the award was based on several considerations such as staff training, welcoming rituals, engaging practices, classroom and school environment and SEL instruction.
The winning Sachse campuses included Hudson Middle School, which won in the bronze distinction and Sachse High School, which won the gold distinction.
