  • To promote SEL development, districts should provide explicit instruction in SEL skills, behaviors, and attitudes.
  • Districts should pursue a systemic approach to SEL planning and implementation that considers resources, needs, and stakeholder input.
  • Districts should provide staff with professional development opportunities and guidance on how to implement SEL.
  • To measure SEL, districts should define and prioritize SEL competencies, and select a variety of instruments to measure those skills.
