The Social-Emotional Learning Materials Selection Committee met for the second time on February 5, 2016. After reviewing the screening tools, the group divided into grade level teams to examine five curriculum options:  Ruler, Second Step, The 4 Rs, Social Decision-Making Problem-Solving, and Mind Up. The committee discussed the merits of each program and made a decision to forward Mind Up and Second Step to be field tested.
