SEL for All

The goal of the Social-Emotional Learning for All project is to provide multi-year, ongoing quality professional development to build the capacity of Missouri districts and schools to embed social-emotional competencies into core content (i.e., addressing standards and intra- and interpersonal competencies simultaneously), ultimately building a sustainable culture.

Through the implementation of Social-Emotional Learning for All, schools support students’ intrapersonal and interpersonal competencies through data-based decision making, multi-tiered instruction and interventions, and collaboration. The project provides a common vocabulary that unifies the efforts of school personnel, families, community members, and students to work together to improve outcomes for all students. Outcomes of the project include increased intra- and interpersonal student competencies; improved academic and behavioral achievement; increased graduation rates; and improved post-school outcomes of students with and without disabilities.

Led by Drs. Gaumer Erickson and Noonan, this project is jointly sponsored by the University of Kansas Center for Research on Learning and the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education.
