Ready to Grow Social-Emotional Learning in Your District? 

The field of social-emotional learning (SEL) is rapidly evolving. As CASEL reports, more and more school districts are reorganizing their central offices to create an integrated approach to SEL and academics. During the 2020-21 year, many districts have also been hiring for new SEL positions in response to student needs during the pandemic and remote learning.

It's critical to build an SEL team if you want to increase the impact of this work. But whether you're making your first—or next—SEL hire, it can be hard to know what position to hire for and what skills to look for in candidates. 

You don't have to start from scratch. Our Ready-to-Use SEL Job Descriptions toolkit has been downloaded by hundreds of educators and administrators since its original release. We've updated this toolkit for 2021 with two new pre-written job descriptions for emerging roles. These descriptions are based on insights from our partner districts, and are open source and free to use as templates.

This Toolkit Includes:

 Descriptions for critical roles, such Director of Social-Emotional Learning, SEL Coordinator/Specialist, and SEL Coach
Descriptions for emerging roles, such as SEL Data Strategist and SEL Instructional Specialist
 A job description from Johnston County Public Schools (NC) for SEL Interventionist
  A summary of responsibilities and requirements for each role

The job descriptions are available in Word and Google Doc formats after downloading.
