As we have all experienced, the “how-to” of implementation is in high demand.  One of our efforts to respond to this demand, is the sharing of the experience and knowledge gained from districts in the Cross District Initiative (CDI) to bring SEL to many more students.

CASEL just launched a social and emotional learning (SEL) District Resource Center, a vast set of online guidance and practical tools to help districts and schools systemically implement practices that promote SEL. The District Resource Center’s collection of district curated resources may be extremely helpful for any educator, community leader, or policymaker interested in implementing SEL systemically in their schools.

The District Resource Center allows you to:

  1. Take the Priority Setting Questionnaire to help determine areas of focus for systemic SEL implementation.
  2. Explore the District Framework for the 10 essential areas for systemically implementing SEL throughout a district.
  3. Browse the Resource Library for 500+ tools and resources on a variety of implementation topics.
