Council of Champions

Submitted by Elmira City SD

There are two resources in this post.

Council of Champions is designed to cultivate upstanding behaviors among students. The curriculum is aligned with NYS SEL Benchmarks (Equity Revisions) by ensuring that youth, particularly grades 5-8, have opportunities to develop self-awareness, nurture positive sense of identity, enhance their cross-cultural skills to effectively connect across difference – all while learning skills to become agents of positive change within their communities. In addition to the updated NYS SEL Benchmarks, the curriculum also aligns with the NYS Culturally Responsive-Sustaining (CR-S) Education Framework and DEI Policy Guidance.
