SEL Roadmap for Reopening Schools

The nonprofit Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL) and several other organizations have released guidance to help schools meet the social and emotional needs of students as they return to school after prolonged closures. The 53-page document focuses on five main areas: building relationships between schools and families, supporting teachers, creating a supportive learning environment for students, using data to shape curriculum, and using strategies that support students. The document includes essential questions that principals, teachers, and school leaders should ask as they make plans to reopen schools—for example: How will we connect with students and families whose voices have not traditionally been elevated? How will we ensure clear, consistent, and culturally responsive communication that keeps all staff, students, families, and community partners informed and engaged? How will we use data to identify effective strategies our school will build on this fall to create supportive learning environments and promote social, emotional, and academic learning for all students? The guidelines also recommend steps that school leaders can take to prepare for the fall, centered on each major area.
