Arkansas to Address Social And Emotional Needs Of Students And Families

The National Governors Association (NGA) will collaborate with Arkansas, Indiana, Michigan, North Dakota, Oregon and Wisconsin on strategies for equitably meeting the social-emotional needs of students and families during and beyond COVID-19.


The NGA Center for Best Practices announced today that it will engage the six states on technical assistance from its staff and national and state partners, as well as grant support to develop and carry out action plans focused on one or more specific state policy priorities related to students’ comprehensive development during and beyond COVID-19.

In addition, Governors’ offices will engage with and learn from peers and national and state experts to advance their policy priorities.


The initiative comes as students and their families confront fear, anxiety, trauma, isolation and stress during COVID-19, as well as growing public concern about economic instability and persistent racial inequities.
