Enrollment Open for SEL101, Starting April 26 Are you a current or aspiring school leader who cares about social-emotional learning, character development and school culture and climate? Starting this month, you can earn an online, professional credential in SEL, CD and SCC. SEL101, the first of three courses from the Academy for Social-Emotional Learning in Schools, begins April 26.
