Student Social-Emotional Support

Student Social-Emotional Support

CORE Framework

The State Board of Education’s (State Board's) K-12 Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) Workgroup developed the Competencies of Relationship-building Education (CORE) Framework, Glossary, and Student Indicators in 2023. The framework can be used to help guide schools in their work to provide SEL to students in an effort to better equip students to become successful, productive contributors to a global society. The State Board chose to use the work of the SEL Workgroup as a framework/resource document for stakeholders, but not to move forward with implementing statewide SEL standards.
