These guidelines are designed to provide a lens through which to view potential or current SEL efforts, to provide a validated reference point for the many considerations involved in determining how SEL should be carried out. This guidance might be used for:
- informing the development of a program under consideration or being proposed,
- examining and improving the effectiveness of an existing program, and
- informing decisions, generally, about the design and dissemination of SEL-related
programming at the policy level.
