Addressing current SEL issues within schools

Use Satchel Pulse to address a lack of Social Emotional Learning screening tools, SEL intervention management, and laborious data-collection processes.

Out-paced SEL tools

An issue with SEL curriculum is that they have far-outpaced assessment tools and SEL in schools can suffer as a result. Many districts have adopted resources in the form of curriculum for schools. However, this often just becomes available to buildings to use on a periodic basis.

Incompatible resources

Oftentimes in larger districts that expand over diverse landscapes and demographics, top down resources and initiatives don’t always fit building-to-building contexts, making it difficult to support students within them. SEL programs such as Satchel Pulse can overcome these barriers.

Overwhelmed data teams

Data teams may be tasked with identifying students who need additional support with their social and emotional skills. This often overshadows that main goal of supporting students as it involves technical work such as data-collection.

How Satchel Pulse solves these challenges

Satchel Pulse provides the tools for effective SEL screening and SEL intervention management so that teachers form supportive relationships with students.

Effectively assess resources

Satchel Pulse helps make current building SEL curriculum meaningful by providing a system for assessing it effectively. This can help buildings better understand the impact of their tier 1 resources.

Apply targeted interventions

Satchel Pulse allows building leaders to facilitate targeted tier 2 and tier 3 interventions. Our SEL lessons support current approaches by recommending small group lesson plans that target specific SEL subskills.

Inclusive teacher voice

Teacher voice is included in the assessment. This helps create ownership over the data by creating a space where teachers get to reflect and include their experiences with students into the data and analysis.

Satchel Pulse seamlessly integrates with current structures

Satchel Pulse is not something “extra” for staff members. It works alongside and supplements much of the student support services already operating within school buildings.

  • Improve planning decisions
    Satchel Pulse helps teams make better planning decisions by taking a data-driven approach that brings SEL student assessment into team discussions. Satchel Pulse makes responsible decision making easy.
  • Save teachers’ time
    Teams don’t have to spend time inputting data into spreadsheets before meetings. Satchel Pulse takes care of data collection and presentation so that conversations remain focused on ways to help students’ social emotional learning competencies.
  • Provides intervention resources
    Our SEL lessons library provides resources to support students' SEL skills. Teachers can then tailor these interventions to meet the needs of their students.
  • Intuitive and easy to use
    Satchel Pulse is clean and easy to understand. For those not as comfortable with technology, it is built to be intuitive and provide only the information you need without overloading users.
  • Easily drill deeper into the data
    Simple displays will provide an overview of data, and users make the decision about digging into other areas and features. Furthermore on-going training and support assists users such as school leaders with making the most of available data.
  • On-going training and support
    Initial onboarding would include guides. We are also frequently updating our SEL resources so that customers have on-demand access as and when they need this to support asynchronously.

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.

For me leading and teaching through the lens of SEL means supporting students to learn with and from each other and to take charge of their own learning.



Vice President of Practice & Programs

There's an 11 to 1 return on investment, so for every dollar invested in programming around social and emotional learning, we see that they're saving 11 dollars. There are lots of reasons people are coming to the conclusion that this is something that we need to be prioritizing.



Co-Founder & Board Chair

The truth is emotion drives attention and attention drives learning. Our country needs social and emotional learning tools now more than ever.
