Social Emotional Learning (SEL) within MTSS

Rebecca Lallier


Research indicates that social emotional learning (SEL) is linked with academic achievement, attendance, and reduction of problem behaviors. Participants will learn how to take a multi-tiered, systems approach to social-emotional learning; examine SEL competencies, standards, and proficiencies; explore the SEL planning and implementation process; and investigate evidence-based practices and programs for K-12 students, including stand-alone and content-area integration models that lead to social and academic success. Strategies for increasing buy-in, collaborating with colleagues, addressing barriers, engaging families in SEL, and data-based decision-making will be explored. Examples of SEL practices in action will be highlighted.
