SummaryThe purpose of the CASEL State Scan is to support the development of high-quality standards for social and emotional learning (SEL), preschool through high school, across the country. This 2014 brief summarizes findings from CASEL’s State Scan, which reviewed the research literature on learning standards generally to identify key components of high-quality standards and assessed the status of each state in developing well-articulated learning standards for SEL, preschool through high school. This brief also provides recommendations to support development of high-quality SEL standards, including examples from states identified as part of CASEL’s State Scan. We conclude with a discussion of CASEL’s plans for advancing high-quality standards for SEL nationwide.
