Needs and Resources Assessment

Districts conduct a needs and resource assessment focused on social and emotional learning (SEL), leveraging a diverse set of stakeholders to reflect on SEL programs and practices already in place and what needs to be addressed, and to build on strengths when implementing SEL systemwide. The assessment documents all existing SEL programs and practices in order to integrate all components of effective SEL and facilitate systemic change.
