SEL Guiding Principles

California SEL Guiding Principles 

On February 23, 2018 the CADOE announced the release of new guiding principles for teaching social and emotional skills, a tool to help educators ensure students have the skills they need for success in school, careers, and in the community.  The California SEL Guiding Principles (Full Document; 1 pager) statements were designed to build on the implicit and explicit SEL practices already happening in many schools and to promote intentional use of evidence and research-based practices to guide decision making.

The CDE identified the goal of curating a collection of systematically gathered, comprehensive and free resources that are aligned with the SEL Guiding Principles.  Developed and curated by a cross-agency project team, this vetted resources collection, or Guide, allows California educators to easily access resources as systems move forward with local SEL priorities.
