For Administration and District Leaders
The responsibilities as an administrator are vast, SEL may seem like a lower priority compared to ADA, API scores, and graduation rates. But, as educators we all want the best for our students, especially in regions facing issues around equity, the instruction in SEL is pivotal. New districts are partnering with CASEL each year to begin on their journey.
The CASEL District Resource Center provides measurement tools, support for interested districts, and implementation guidelines. Within Sacramento City USD, I've witnessed the impact of partnering with CASEL. Investing in these tools district-wide requires buy-in and patience, first our teachers need to be support in their own SEL experience; you can only teach what you know.
