Social Emotional Learning Key Points
In 2021, the Oregon Legislature passed House Bill 2166, Section 4 requiring the development of social emotional standards and a framework for K-12 public school students in Oregon. ODE is approaching this bill as a multi-phase process. Phase 1 of implementation fulfills the bill requirement of ODE in consultation with the Early Learning Division and the Teacher Standards and Practices Commission (TSPC), to convene an Advisory Group (Phase 1 SEL Advisory Group) to develop an initial report describing the proposed SEL standards and framework that will be used by the State Board of Education when considering the standards and framework for adoption in September 2023. As stated in the bill, the report is to be submitted to the State Board of Education no later than September 15, 2022.
Phase 2 of implementation includes establishing a Phase 2 SEL Advisory Group charged with developing the SEL framework and standards for adoption by the State Board of Education (SBE) by September 15, 2023. This next Advisory Group will be guided by the bill text as well as the contents of the report created by the Phase 1 SEL Advisory Group.
School districts will be required to implement the adopted SEL Framework and Standards on July 1, 2024.
