Resources for Current Times
The Center has compiled resources to support states, districts, and schools as they serve students throughout the COVID-19 pandemic and as they work to advance racial justice and create more equitable systems. These sets of resources can be found below.
As part of our targeted tier of technical assistance, the Center offers peer-to-peer collaborative opportunities for SEAs and LEAs to work on a shared problem of practice relevant to the broader field. This work yields co-designed and participant-tested tools and resources that are then disseminated more broadly to the field.

In addition to the tools, resources, and publications that the SEL Center authors, we also review and curate the work of others who offer research-based approaches to social and emotional learning and school safety. Below, we offer a selection of resources to help the field identify and select evidence-based programs and practices.

To do so, the Center will offer three-tiered technical assistance.
