SEL programs help youth and adults learn and apply knowledge, skills and attitudes to enrich their personal and academic lives. Studies have shown that social-emotional programs increase academic performance, attendance, behavior and post-secondary success. Satchel Pulse is an easy-to-use survey with 25 simple questions. Students use the survey to rate their self-awareness, self management, social awareness, relationship, and responsible decision making skills. This helps us learn how to best support students’ ongoing development. For more information on Social-Emotional Learning visit the ODE Website. For a concise description of skills taught in SEL programs visit the National University Website. For information from Sachel Pulse and Teachercentric visit the Satchel Pulse Website. If you have any questions please contact you student's school counselor.
