“We know that SEL is essential for students to thrive in school and in life. It is critical that we have data that accurately identify essential SEL student and adult skills. Ultimately these data must inform our policies, improve our climate, and inspire our practices to ensure equitable outcomes for all”.
-Eric Moore, Chief of Accountability, Innovation and Research, Minneapolis Public Schools
