Social and
Emotional Learning


Action Steps

  • The state should create a crosswalk between the state’s counseling standards and the interpersonal and character skills in the Connecticut Common Core. This process will help create common statewide terms related to social and emotional skills and learning.
  • Counselors should sit on curriculum-writing committees to integrate the counseling standards around personal and social relationships into academic content.
  • The state accountability system should include measures related to SEL, for example attendance and suspension rates and survey-based measures of social and emotional skills.
  • The State Department of Education, districts, and larger schools should create staff positions charged with developing and implementing SEL programs and coordinating mental health and behavioral support services.
