Early Lessons from Schools and Out-of-School Time Programs Implementing Social and Emotional Learning

The report and executive summary review lessons learned from the first two years of the Partnership for Social-Emotional Learning Initiative (PSELI). Findings are based on  surveys, interviews, and observations from 38 partnerships in 6 sites about the barriers and solutions to school-OST partnerships on SEL. Findings include the need to build adult SEL skills, set aside staff time for communication and for implementing SEL activities, and to formalize practices so they are maintained regardless of staff turnover. There is also a companion webinar about the report:  https://www.wallacefoundation.org/knowledge-center/pages/early-findings-and-lessons-from-the-partnerships-for-sel-webinar.aspx?utm_source=PSELI+Webinar+10.26.20&utm_campaign=81502551e8-EMAIL_CAMPAIGN_2020_10_27_05_34&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_6d337e88af-81502551e8-221181114
