SEL Awardee

New York City Department of Education Urban Assembly

New York, NY
“The Urban Assembly has been using a guided implementation model to support the quality of implementation and sustainability of social-emotional programming in urban high schools. The implementation design process has decreased suspensions and enhanced school climate and academic achievement. SEL assessment is an important aspect of this work. Feedback from teachers revealed that assessment is used to measure outcomes but students had minimal opportunities for their own reflection. Our project will create a network-wide model that the Urban Assembly and other districts can use to help students understand their social-emotional strengths and needs through peer-based dialogue.”
