Educator Wellness Toolkit: Leading a School with Wellness at the Forefront

In Indiana, much attention has been paid to the importance of educator wellness and ways in which educators can improve upon their wellness by promoting positive relationships with students and staff, creating effective classroom climates, and managing a work-life balance. The Indiana Department of Education and several other state agencies released a toolkit for educational leaders to create a culture of wellness within their buildings and districts.

When educators are well, students are much more likely to thrive. School leaders are in a position to create policies, environments, infrastructure and climates that motivate and enable school staff to be well. This toolkit highlights powerful practices, available support and case studies in which school leaders put educators in the forefront of a topic often focused on students.
