Schools and communities are seeking the most effective ways to teach, reinforce, and cue social and emotional learning skills that are essential to student and adult success.
The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction, in partnership with the Collaborative for Academic, Social and Emotional Learning (CASEL) has been coordinating a statewide workgroup to develop Social and Emotional Learning Competencies for Pre/K-Adult. These competencies are grounded in the Wisconsin Model Early Learning Standards and standards developed by Madison Metropolitan School District and focus on three core areas: Emotional Development, Self-Concept, and Social Competence.
DPI invites you to review the draft Social and Emotional Learning Competencies for Pre-K/Adult and provide feedback on the public survey. The state level competencies will be available to school districts and out-of-school time programs across the state to allow communities to determine the best way to utilize these for all students.
