Foundational SEL learning opportunities are not yet provided.
Foundational SEL learning opportunities have been provided to some key stakeholders (staff, families, and community partners). Members of the school community have a general understanding of SEL and its impact on students’ development.
Foundational SEL learning opportunities have been provided for school staff, families, and community partners but are not yet offered annually. Many members of the school community can discuss SEL’s importance and its impact on students’ development.
Foundational SEL learning opportunities are provided for all school staff in the first year of implementation and then at least annually for new school staff, families, community partners, and as part of the on-boarding process. Almost all members of the school community can discuss SEL’s importance and its impact on student outcomes and understand their own role in helping students develop social and emotional competencies.
Why are foundational learning opportunities important?
When all stakeholders understand the value of SEL, share common language, and know their role in schoolwide SEL, it builds the foundation for high-quality, sustained implementation.
