Meaningful, Measurable, and Achievable Under ESSA As a leader in education, what non-academic factor
will you be using under the new federal Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA)?
This webinar, featuring content provided by Committee for Children, explores
how social-emotional learning (SEL) can be that factor. SEL has been shown to
increase academic performance, decrease behavioral issues and suspensions,
and improve graduation rates. Committee for Children (CFC) developed an
evidence-based SEL curriculum used in 22 percent of all U.S. elementary and
middle schools, and advocates for inclusion of SEL in primary, secondary, and
career/technical education. This live session will cover policy research about
how SEL can be implemented and assessed. The chief academic officer of CORE
Districts will present learnings from nine districts that have already
implemented a school quality improvement index that measures growth mindset,
self-efficacy, self-management, and social awareness.
