Washington Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) Capacity Building Series

March 6, 2020—May 20, 2021


REL Northwest, in collaboration with the Washington Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction, has developed a series of trainings to strengthen SEL planning and implementation in districts and schools across Washington state. The trainings are designed to help educators:

  • Increase their understanding of the evidence base for quality SEL implementation in schools, including promising practices related to systems conditions, adult capacity, and community collaboration
  • Increase the use of evidence-based resources, including the Washington SEL resource package, to support SEL planning, implementation, and evaluation in districts of all sizes
  • Create opportunities for capacity builders and educators across the state to connect, share lessons learned, and discuss the implications of research and evidence for the integration of SEL with existing efforts related to academics, multi-tiered systems of support (MTSS), and equity
