CSI Standards Advisory Committee

The following leaders are helping to guide the work of our Collaborating States Initiative, a group of selected states that are creating: (1) a comprehensive set of free-standing standards and learning goals for SEL with developmental benchmarks for preschool through high school; (2) model policies, including consistent language and terminology that can be used to help embed SEL standards and learning goals throughout the education system; and (3) practice guidelines and other tools to support implementation of social and emotional learning for preschool through high school.
