October: Kickoff CCEE, CDE, and Sacramento County Office of Education Advisory Collaborative
In October 2021, the California Collaborative for Educational Excellence (CCEE), the California Department of Education (CDE), and the Sacramento County Office of Education convened a group of partners to define a collective approach to measuring the impact of the historical statewide investment in social-emotional learning (SEL) on student mental health and wellbeing. During this meeting, leaders discussed the systems, program, and data-related barriers and opportunities of measuring and demonstrating the impact of well-being initiatives. They are illustrated in the following chart.
Following this kickoff session, the group engaged in six subsequent advisory discussions where partners presented approaches to measuring the impact of investments in SEL on student outcomes:
