Ohio’s Strategic Plan for Education: Each Child, Our Future

Posted Jan 31, 2023

The “whole child” remains at the center of Ohio’s education strategic plan, which you can review here. One of the Four Learning Domains is Social-Emotional Learning (SEL). Ohio has adopted new SEL standards around these five SEL competencies: self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationship skills, and responsible decision making. Otterbein University’s Education Department is working with our teacher candidates and practicing teachers to understand and implement these SEL standards. Dr. Allison McGrath, Otterbein’s special education expert, leads SEL courses and workshops for local teachers.
