Additional SEL Resources & Partner Organizations
Although it will always be crucial to train adults on SEL practices and related information (neuroscience, trauma-informed practices and approaches, best practices for facilitating out of school enrichment time, etc.), training alone cannot guide campus growth and expertise in SEL implementation.
CASEL’s guidance has taught us that schools are more effective at teaching and reinforcing SEL for students when they also cultivate SEL competencies in adults.
Our work is stronger when done in partnership and a key component of effective IST and OST partnership is aligned objectives and clear roles.
We have identified four guiding principles as the collective “North Star” of our SEL implementation efforts: Relationships, Environment, Resilience and Engagement.
Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) builds the skills, knowledge, and attitudes that both students and adults need to be successful in school, work, and life. They include things such as knowing and controlling your emotions, teamwork, understanding others, making positive choices, and resilience.
