Use Satchel Pulse as a systematized approach to SEL that addresses the lack of coherent structures, targeted SEL professional development, and evaluation tools.
Needing a clear SEL approach
Many districts have taken on different approaches to supporting SEL growth. These may include some pieces of a process such as tier 1 curriculum resources. When districts don’t have an approach that includes SEL assessment, intervention, and monitoring, it can be difficult to know whether or not efforts have the desired effect.
Lacking professional learning
Given the backgrounds and experiences of educators, planning for meaningful professional learning opportunities can be challenging. When it comes to supporting educators with employing social-emotional learning, it can be even more difficult as it may not be aligned with their educational background.
No tools to evaluate efforts
SEL curriculum has out-paced SEL assessment tools. Many districts have adopted resources to support social-emotional learning, but do not have ways to effectively implement or assess them. This can make it difficult to know whether or not district actions have the intended impact on student outcomes.
Satchel Pulse supports SEL within districts
Satchel Pulse is an extensive solution that includes a myriad of approaches and opportunities for strengthening SEL outcomes across a school system.
Systematized Approach for Supporting SEL
Universal SEL screeners serve as baseline assessments for all students to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to explore their strengths and next steps for SEL growth. Follow up diagnostics help dig-deeper into student needs by exploring specific SEL sub-skill needs. Follow up assessments with targeted intervention support provided by Satchel Pulse.
Buildings can deploy our SEL intervention management plans with any educator to deliver small-group and one-on-one instruction that targets student needs based off of our assessment data and tier recommendations
Use Satchel Pulse as an online tool for MTSS/RTI/PBIS, our assessment model and approach specifically aligns to this context. Make student tier recommendations based on a tiered approach so that all students are getting the support that they need. View this data with other relevant evidence to gain more accurate insight into student profiles.
District reports allow for a wide variety of data analysis. The reports are quick and easy to use. Users can quickly review overall and individual CASEL competency scores from school to school through an easy to read format.
Flexible filtering helps highlight equity by allowing for a more customized view of this report that pinpoints the social-emotional performance of student sub-groups across schools. Simple color-coding highlights areas of success across the system and room for improvement. District leaders can support their buildings with overall improvement of student SEL outcomes by using the data to provide next steps.
Satchel Pulse includes an intervention library that houses intervention resources for students. However, this feature can also be used to organize and distribute current SEL lessons within a district. Import current SEL curriculum, district-created, and building-created resources into our system to allow for all educators to access and use to support student needs. This also allows for districts to better assess, monitor, and evaluate their current resources as buildings use these to support student SEL gaps.
Satchel Pulse includes a variety of ways to monitor building progress and approaches to supporting students SEL skill growth. The SEL dashboard includes an overview of live tier movement that displays students who are moving in and out of tiers.
Furthermore, filtering options allow for districts to dig into the movement of specific sub-groups of students. View diagnostic status and explore the number of interventions created weekly. Dig down even more by choosing a student from this screen to see their progress monitoring report that reveals the ways buildings and teachers are supporting student needs.

The survey took very little time and the interface was student friendly. The students especially liked using the sliding scale with the different faces instead of numbers or words, that made it easier for them.
