Integrating Social, Emotional and Academic Development

An Action Guide for School Leadership Teams Including Asset Mapping and Resource Allocation

Originally published online by the Aspen Institute


To help principals and school leadership teams see how social and emotional learning can enhance academic performance, and how to weave social-emotional development into every aspect of school, the Aspen Institute and its partners created Integrating Social, Emotional, and Academic Development (SEAD): An Action Guide for School Leadership Teams. In collaboration with ERS, the guide was written to provide practical advice, curated resources, and action steps for school leaders to improve the student experience, calling out specific equity implications in every section to give these issues priority in planning.

ERS created a section within the guide on asset mapping and resource allocation where the goal is for every school’s resources—people, time, money, technology, physical space, and community partnerships—are deliberately organized around our vision for student success. We have a full understanding of the assets that exist inside and outside of our school that will help us achieve this vision.

Co-developed with practitioner-leaders from Minneapolis and Nashville public schools, and experts from University of Chicago, Student Achievement Partners, Dana Center at UT-Austin, Education Resource Strategies, and Education First, the SEAD School Action Guide is a resource that empowers and challenges principals and their teams to address the social, emotional, and academic dimensions of learning together to advance equity.
