Strengthen Adult SEL Competencies and Capacity (Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning, CASEL)
In order to create conditions for students to engage in SEL, adults need to feel empowered, supported, and valued. This calls on districts to foster a supportive staff community that promotes adults’ own SEL. This focus area helps districts strengthen staff expertise and skills to lead SEL initiatives, as well as cultivate adults’ social, emotional and cultural competencies.
Key Activities include: Central Office Expertise, Professional Learning, Adult SEL and Cultural Competence.
