- Austin Independent School District (AISD) integrates social and emotional learning with academic learning and its district-wide goals to improve climate and culture. A highly structured five-year AISD implementation plan features SEL evidence-based programs. SEL specialists provide professional development for SEL leadership teams and educators at all school sites, followed by on-site coaching.
“All funders will tell you that the site visit makes the biggest difference in their funding decision. Seeing SEL in action, along with meeting teachers, kids, and principals, is vital.” – Sherrie Raven, SEL Director, Austin Independent School District (AISD) (from 2011-2016)
