Additional Resources

CASEL District Resource Center

The District Resource Center is the Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning’s (CASEL) website of guidance and practical tools to help districts and schools systemically implement practices that promote social-emotional learning (SEL). The site’s collection of resources may be helpful for educators, community leaders, or policymakers interested in implementing SEL systemically in their schools.

Get Started


Edutopia has put together The Big List of Educational Grants and Resources. The grants and resources may not be specific to our program or SEL, but they may also be helpful.

“We needed a sequenced curriculum that could be used to train paraprofessionals and staff to deliver a consistent social skills program to every student in the school. The Second Step Program works for us.”
