Leading Social-Emotional Learning Is Difficult Work.

SEL Playbook for SuperintendentsAt the same time, social-emotional learning (SEL) is more important now than ever.

Districts that build a strong foundation for SEL now will set up their students to thrive in today's changing educational landscape.

We were lucky enough to connect with 18 superintendents and senior district leaders who dedicated their time and expertise to the following question:

What is the single most effective "change management" strategy you've used to lead SEL in your district?

In this playbook, we compiled exactly what they shared with us. As a bonus, you'll also get their advice on the role of SEL in distance learning and back-to-school planning.

Download the playbook now to hear from superintendents at Andover Public Schools (MA), Hilliard City Schools (OH), Long Beach Unified School District (CA), Ferndale Schools (MI), and many more.
