TRANSFORM into A “Thriving School”
“Surviving Schools” existed long before the pandemic. These schools struggle to close the achievement gap each year as they shovel their way through discipline referrals, poor learning outcomes, lack of attendance, increased dropout rates, and low morale.
“Surviving Schools” know their school culture and climate is suffering and staff and students’ well-being is on the line. Yet, they remain stuck in old patterns that further drive the cracks of inequity, lack of engagement, and worrisome mental health.
As schools begin to rethink how they will transform into a “Thriving School”, they are met with inspiring and hopeful solutions- one of which is social-emotional learning.
“Thriving Schools” know that they’ll need a school-wide SEL initiative to experience the vast benefits of social-emotional learning. They also know that one of the first places to begin this transformative journey is to cultivate Adult SEL [CASEL’s Focus Area 2]. This is a critical yet often overlooked step required to effectively teach, model, and shape these skills in our youth.
For many “Surviving Schools”, they will skip this step for reasons like:
- We don’t have enough time
- There’s too much on our plates already
- There are more pressing issues to address
- It’s simply not our job to teach SEL
- We don’t have the expertise to be effective
We know that transforming into a “Thriving School” is a marathon not a sprint but remaining a “Surviving School” guarantees you’ll continue to experience hardships that negatively affect learner outcomes and staff and student well-being.
When school communities shift their mindsets to align with a trauma-informed, equity-driven SEL approach they cement their school-wide SEL initiative and ensure all students succeed.

HOW THE PROGRAM WORKS
Social Success in Schools® has created an on-demand K-12 Transformative SEL Program aligned with CASEL’s Equity-driven Theory of Action. The web-based program combines research-driven educator professional development with student and family resources to root SEL into the natural learning environment and enrich the soil of school communities.
We know educators and families, just like students, want choices. Our K-12 Transformative SEL Program is designed to elevate your school-wide SEL mission, not compete with or replace your existing SEL curriculum.
We value the work that’s being done to support schools in educating the whole child. We believe it takes a village and that collective action for the greater good is needed. That’s why we are committed to keeping costs low and extending access for 3 years, so school communities don’t have to wonder which program to choose. Let us help cement your SEL initiative to ensure all students benefit from social-emotional learning.
