SEL in North Andover


SEL in North Andover

Imagine a school where the leaders consistently model good practices, proactively train staff, welcome parents as partners, focus on relationships (student-student, adult-student, adult-adult), use positive discipline policies, and invest time and resources in and out of the classroom. Research shows that social and emotional learning (SEL) helps create and is most effective in safe and supportive learning environments like these.


Using CASEL's School Theory of Action framework and resources, North Andover Public School's SEL action plan will include the following:

  • Develop a vision that prioritizes academic, social, and emotional learning.
  • Conduct an SEL-related resources and needs assessment to inform goals for schoolwide SEL.
  • Design and implement effective professional learning programs to build internal capacity for academic, social, and emotional learning.
  • Adopt and implement evidence-based programs for academic, social, and emotional learning across all grades.
  • Integrate SEL at all three levels of school functioning (curriculum and instruction, schoolwide practices and policies, family and community partnerships).
  • Establish processes to continuously improve academic, social, and emotional learning through inquiry and data collection.
