Over the summer, Dawson County Middle and Dawson County Junior High School decided to switch to a new social and emotional learning curriculum to help students adopt lifelong mindsets for success. Now halfway through the school year, DCMS Principal Dr. Randi Sagona and DCHJS Principal Connie Stovall presented how the new curriculum is being embraced by the students in its first semester during the Dec. 10 board of education meeting. The 7 Mindsets curriculum was created after three years of research and over 400 personal interviews that developed into seven mental habits most prevalent in the research participants.
