What is a Growth Strategy?
Growth Strategies are activities and lessons that provide actionable ways for educators to help their students improve their social and emotional skills.

Our SEL system, Evo Social/Emotional, offers hundreds of Growth Strategies available at various grade levels (Primary, Intermediate, Middle) and in different settings including Universal (whole class/group), Small Group, Individual, and Take-Home. 

Each Growth Strategy targets one of the 8 CASEL-aligned SEL competencies that the DESSA measures:

  • Self-Awareness
  • Self-Management
  • Optimistic Thinking
  • Personal Responsibility
  • Social-Awareness
  • Relationship Skills
  • Goal-Directed Behavior
  • Decision-Making

"For funding, it’s been amazing to be able to provide the data to show donors and granting organizations what we’re doing and that we have results. 
It's a reliable measure and we love it!"
