SEL Advisory Committee Member Application for 2022-2023

Social Emotional Learning (SEL) Advisory Committee Member Application

Thank you for your interest in serving on the SEL Advisory Committee. Advisory members serve for one year. Legislatively identified representatives are listed in Question 3. Not all representative positions are open; however, we will retain applications for future openings.

The Washington State Legislature authorized OSPI to convene the SEL Advisory Committee to continue to expand and promote SEL across the state. The following are some of the tasks that the committee is charged with:
  • Developing and implementing a framework for social emotional learning that is trauma-informed, culturally sustaining, and developmentally appropriate.
  • Reviewing and updating as needed the SEL standards, benchmarks and indicators and confirming they are evidence-based.
  • Aligning standards and benchmarks for SEL with other relevant standards and guidelines including K-12 health and physical education learning standards and the early learning and development guidelines.
  • Developing a model of best practices or guidance for schools on implementing benchmarks and indicators.
  • Identifying professional development opportunities for educational staff.
  • Reviewing, updating and aligning as needed the SEL online education modules for teachers and educational staff.
  • Considering systems for collecting data about SEL and monitoring implementation efforts.
  • Identifying SEL strategies to improve coordination between early learning, K-12 education, youth-serving community partners, culturally based providers, and higher education.
  • Soliciting community input.
