    Open Circle is an evidence-based social and emotional learning (SEL) program for Kindergarten through Grade 5. Open Circle is a  whole-school approach that includes training for all adults in the school community – teachers, administrators, counselors, support staff and families – to learn how to teach, model, and reinforce prosocial skills throughout the school day and at home. 

    Benefits of Open Circle:

    • Unites schools with common vocabulary
    • Improves school climate
    • Increases students’ use of prosocial and critical thinking skills
    • Reduces negative behaviors such as peer exclusion, bullying and fighting
    • Strengthens educators' SEL skills
    • Buys back time for academics through proactive behavior management
