SEL Interventions Management

Satchel Pulse's SEL interventions management tool allows districts and school leaders to monitor student behavior progress with social emotional learning (SEL) interventions. If a student is struggling with making friends, lacks emotional regulation, or just needs guidance for developing prosocial behaviors, a social emotional learning intervention management tool can target these issues and get the student back on track. Then, monitor their social emotional progress and plan the next steps for further short-term and long-term successes.

Tier recommendations

Satchel Pulse enables data-driven decisions to help prioritize discussions around student behavior and facilitates targeted SEL programs with evidence-based tier recommendations. This means that all students who are struggling in certain skill areas are flagged, young learners whose social emotional competencies (self-awareness, self-management, responsible decision-making, social awareness, and relationship skills) change with different environments are tracked. Students currently faring well in their SEL development are not left to fall behind over time.

Automated tier placement recommendations

Satchel Pulse's SEL interventions management tool automatically determines tier placements for all students, flagging those with problem areas in student behavior or academic achievement. Using evidence-based methods, our tier placement tool eases educators' work burdens and ensures no student gets left behind in their social emotional development. Educators can approve the automatic tier recommendations made by our intervention management tool or alter them to a tier they think better suits the student.

Effortless student intervention planning

Get appropriate intervention plans for each student, whether special needs or general education, based on accurate screening and assessment data. Increase academic achievements, prosocial behaviors, and social emotional competencies to ensure progression and growth in the right areas at the right time.

Intervention planning

Intervention planning is simple with Satchel Pulse's interventions management tool, which allows school leaders to align interventions with SEL screenings and assessments. With the flexibility to assign students as a group or on their own, systematically map out which students are involved in these interventions based on accurate data and understand the social emotional learning programs they could really benefit from.

Intervention grouping

Social emotional learning intervention management tools help group students into areas in common. For example, grouping students by the low social emotional learning competencies they have in common, such as responsible decision-making. They can also be grouped by grade, class, age, or school. Students are automatically grouped by our intervention management tool, saving schools time and resources and allowing targeted intervention classes to specifically provide opportunities the students need to develop their SEL skills.

Intervention library

The best SEL management tools offer a selection of intervention plans that are user-friendly and adaptable for all grade levels. SEL management tools should also be designed by experts in their field to ensure content is as high-quality as possible. That's why we created our high-quality intervention library for targeting social emotional competencies, providing extra guidance for students with special needs, and recommending the best SEL programs for your students. Districts can quickly search through our library of SEL intervention plans to find the expertly-made content they need for their intervention goals and targets.

SEL interventions explained

Satchel Pulse's Social Emotional Learning product

What are SEL interventions in early childhood?

SEL interventions in early childhood are the most effective and often provide the most positive results, but that's not to say that schools should not provide opportunities for SEL interventions for older students too. Students should be encouraged to develop their social skills and social emotional competencies as early as possible to get maximum benefit for the rest of their school careers. A good example of SEL interventions includes using color associations for strong emotions or even using an emotion wheel with faces so young learners can connect their feelings with colors, words, and expressions. Conversations surrounding SEL interventions with young learners should always be short and clear, and daily check-ins are very important for emotional development.

What intervention strategies are for students with emotional problems?

SEL intervention strategies can be anything from written worksheets to roleplay, from making art to watching videos. For students with emotional problems, such as those who lack emotional regulation, the most effective intervention strategies could be done in tier-based intervention classes or one-on-one with a school counselor, educator, or specialized support staff. SEL intervention strategies for students with emotional problems could include a group lunchtime session, facilitated by adults, where these students can do an activity that will challenge them on their emotional competencies in a fun, controlled environment. Rules and behavior expectations should be clearly defined at the beginning of each session, and the response students will see if they act inappropriately should be outlined.

What are Tier 1 / 2 interventions?

Our tier recommendations come in 3 groups: Tier 1, Tier 2, and Tier 3. Students can move between tiers based on their ever-changing social emotional competencies. Tier 1 and Tier 2 are for students who receive high marks in their social emotional competency assessments - those who may not immediately require SEL interventions. Tier 3, however, is for those students with problem areas regarding their social emotional development, such as those ranking low on self-awareness screenings or who commonly display student behavior problems. Tier 1 and Tier 2 interventions are therefore often less targeted for specific areas as they do not require immediate help, but rather to ensure that their social emotional competencies do not decrease over time.

What are evidence-based SEL interventions?

Evidence-based SEL interventions are high-quality intervention strategies that are designed by social emotional learning experts who know exactly how to use to target specific student issues. They aim to use proven methods and strategies to improve young learners' social emotional competencies and increase their readiness for college, career, and beyond. There is evidence, whether by research or tried-and-tested in classrooms, that these SEL interventions are effective and that they truly help students make progress with the social emotional competencies in the areas they need them. Academic research and studies are often the backbones of strong, evidence-based SEL interventions and help bring extra validity to the SEL strategies educators may choose.

Student Profile

Satchel Pulse gathers student information on current and historical SEL results, so school and district leaders get a complete view of student progress and development. Student profiles on Satchel Pulse's intervention management tool also include information such as if a student is having difficulty making friends, if they're demonstrating poor social problem-solving skills, or if they have special needs. We recommend that school leaders add as much information related to a young learner's social emotional competencies and development progress as possible onto the SEL intervention platform.

Get a complete view of your students' SEL journey

The student profile offers a full view of historical and current student data, including screeners over time, and both current and past interventions. You control which data you want to focus on and easily dig deeper. Avoid cognitive overload on your screen with our easy filtering system to sift through results and highlight the big data points for further analysis.
