Amplify AISD Social and Emotional Learning!

The Amplify Austin day of giving ends at 6pm, and so there are hours…YES HOURS! left for you to support social and emotional learning in Austin Independent School District!



Why Invest in Social & Emotional Learning?

The SEL curriculum teaches the knowledge, attitudes, and skills necessary to understand and manage emotions, set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions.

A recent national study by Columbia University found an average return of over eleven dollars for every dollar invested in SEL-type interventions.  AISD has received national recognition for implementing SEL successfully in a large urban district. Successes from AISD’s most recent program evaluation include:

  • A 32% decrease in discipline referrals across vertical teams implementing SEL in the past three years
  • For the first cohort of campuses participating in SEL, a significant increase in the percentage of students meeting the state standard on STAAR reading and math

Your support for expanding SEL will equip every student district-wide with valuable skills for success in academics, behavior, and life.
