Center To Improve Social and Emotional Learning and School Safety–Cooperative Agreement Office of Elementary and Secondary Education/Department of Education

blacklandd_thumb.jpg 02-Jul-2018 1,000,000.00 USD
Contact Email eve.birge@ed.gov
Sponsor Website https://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2018-05-16/pdf/2018-10474.pdf
Deadline Dates (ALL) 02-Jul-2018
Synopsis The purpose of the Center is to provide technical assistance to support States and districts in the implementation of social and emotional learning evidence-based (as defined in this notice) programs and practices. The Center will enhance the capacity of (1) State educational agencies (SEAs) to support their local educational agencies (LEAs) and (2) LEAs to support their schools. Studies have analyzed the economic impact of six SEL programs and found that on average, every dollar invested yields $11 in long-term benefits, ranging from improved mental and physical health, reduced juvenile crime, and higher lifetime earnings. But implementation is not always consistent. When there is not adequate training or understanding by implementers, assessment of efficacy, or accountability, it can jeopardize positive student impacts. The technical assistance described in this notice will support States and districts by enhancing their capacity to successfully implement EBPPs. For the purpose of this notice inviting applications, SEL includes developing and maintaining positive relationships with peers and adults; using self-control; building social skills, including recognizing and managing emotions in oneself; understanding others’ emotions and perspectives; making responsible decisions (i.e.”making good choices”); working effectively in cooperative groups; coping with frustration; reading social cues; resolving interpersonal conflicts; demonstrating compassion and empathy toward others; exercising persistence; building resilience; and developing other SEL skills and abilities.
