Collaborating Districts Initiative (CDI)

CASEL has partnered with school districts across the country to make SEL central to the educational process. Teachers are creating classrooms where students are engaged, respected, and empowered — and where they succeed academically. The result? Academic achievement, graduation rates, and attendance are up. Suspensions and disciplinary incidents are down. Learn more about our 20 partner districts, key findings from the initiative, and the community that has developed from this work to strengthen and sustain efforts.
