Choosing the Right SEL Program For Your School - CASEL

There are numerous different programs for introducing SEL to your school, each with its own approach, intended audience and evaluation outcomes. If your international school has made the decision to move forward with implementing SEL into your community, the first thing to do is choose the right SEL program for your school.
The CASEL Program Guide will help you do this using the following simple step-by-step process:
  1. 1.
    ​Determine your SEL team and goals – during this step, you will understand what your school community wants SEL to look like and how it will align with your school’s vision.
  2. 2.
    ​Connect your needs to specific metrics – CASEL’s guide assesses SEL programs using a number of different metrics, so this step is about making the connection between the goals you have identified and how these are evaluated in the Program Guide.
  3. 3.
    ​Identify and compare SEL programs – in this step, you will be able to view a complete list of programs included in the guide, and use a handy comparison tool to compare a shortlist of up to three programs by your chosen criteria.
Following this process, you should end up with an SEL program that aligns with your school’s vision and goals.
