Social and Emotional Learning: Why Students Need It. What Districts are Doing About It.
This publication explores how three diverse school districts – Sacramento, California, Anchorage, Alaska and Bridgeport, Connecticut – are taking their SEL strategy to scale and some of the key administrative, academic, communications and measurement decisions they face along the way. The publication begins with an overview paper that explores six key implementation questions with recommendations based on the districts’ approaches, followed by three individual case studies that introduce readers to the challenges and successes each city is experiencing with SEL implementation. The report also offers recommendations for schools and districts to incorporate SEL into the fabric of their own school communities and beyond. The report can be found here.
