What is RULER?
Research shows that students with stronger social emotional skills are better prepared to focus, learn, and do their best in school. Our district has adopted RULER, a program developed by the Center for Emotional Intelligence at Yale University, to teach these skills to students of all grade levels. Below you will find tools and resources to help you understand RULER and use these same tools at home!
Why do emotions matter?
