Social Emotional Learning

We use the phrase "Social Emotional Learning (SEL)" interchangeably with "behavior MTSS." SEL is an expansive umbrella of practices provided to students at every level of the MTSS framework in order to build skills in the areas of:

Cross-District SEL Website

The cross-district SEL website is a neutrally-branded, community-facing resource that is linked from each of our member districts' websites.

  • It offers unique resources to studentsfamilies, and educators.
  • It hosts our locally-developed Be Good People SEL curriculum. Educators across the country visit the SEL website every day to access Be Good People.
  • At the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, many districts created "virtual calming rooms." The SEL website was originally created to support our member districts with the Calming Strategies Toolbox, a version of a virtual calming room that was designed to be useful regardless of learning model.

Tier 1

NOTE: These resources are applicable to staff working at any level of the MTSS framework (including Special Education) because Tier 1 is the foundation of all SEL in a school.

  • SEL Classroom Guide The "ultimate classroom management resource." An idea board for continuously improving your craft around engagement, relationship building, and more.
  • Integrated SEL Instruction Get ideas for how you can intentionally optimize academic routines (e.g., peer feedback rituals, group work, etc.) to support SEL.
  • Be Good People Curriculum Our free, locally-developed, K-12 SEL curriculum. All schools in our member districts offer explicit SEL instruction in their core, and over half of them use Be Good People in this capacity. Other curriculums used at tier 1 in our districts include Second Step.


Tier 2

  • Tier 2 Interventions When the core alone isn't enough, we need highly-efficient standardized interventions that we can quickly match students with. Our index of Tier 2 interventions includes integrity checklists, resources, progress monitoring tips, and more!
  • Explicit SEL Instruction Browse an index of SEL curriculums, many of which are freely available, to help you plan an effective scope and sequence of instruction for your Tier 2 intervention.


Tier 3

  • Tier 3 Interventions Guidance on planning Tier 3 behavior interventions and collecting useful progress monitoring data. When our standard "plug and play" Tier 2 interventions are not sufficient, we need to intensify and individualize.
  • Explicit SEL Instruction Browse an index of SEL curriculums, many of which are freely available, to help you plan an effective scope and sequence of instruction for your Tier 3 intervention.
