Assess needs and resources to develop an SEL implementation plan with clear goals, action steps, and assigned ownership.
Establish a structured, ongoing process to collect, reflect on, and use implementation and outcome data to inform school-level decisions and drive improvements to SEL implementation.

This process helps schools create an environment that supports students in developing the academic, social, and emotional competencies that they need to navigate the world.
The SEL team serves as a model for positive practices that promote healthy relationships among adults, students, and families. It’s highly beneficial to build a strong team dynamic and positive working relationship by developing group norms and team routines.
Develop a coordinated approach for supporting students’ social and emotional learning across the school, classrooms, homes, and communities.
Review your current level of implementation, identify needs and resources, set goals, and develop concrete action steps for SEL implementation.
