Today, more and more districts are supporting Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) as a focused strategy— not only for improving school climate and student engagement but also for improving student learning.
AlaQuest Collaborative for Education helps school districts develop a clear plan to measure SEL implementation that aligns with their district goals. Whether school districts want to address the climate and culture, student demonstration of SEL skills, student achievement, safety or other areas, ACE guides and works beside leaders, teachers, and students to apply the right-fittiing resources. Visit CASEL website for more resources of how to measure SEL work.
ACE is who educators turn to for Professional Development. ACE has found that developing SEL skills in adults improves professional interactions inside the school and prepares teachers to help students develop their own SEL skills.
SEL implementation is reflected not only in classroom instruction, but in policies and practices on school climate, culture and partnerships with families. With support inside and outside of each district, ACE believes that SEL implementation has a stronger chance to be sustained and supported through changes in district leadership or downturns in finances. Join ACE with your donation to increase the implementation of SEL in Alabama's schools. Thank you for your partnership.
