RULER Training for School Teams

Attending a RULER training is the first step for schools (preK-12) looking to implement RULER. Our training institutes focus on building a growth mindset and common language around emotions, skill development in emotional intelligence, and the building and sustaining of positive social and emotional climates where all stakeholders in the school feel empowered to learn, work, and achieve. 

The team that attends training is called the “RULER Implementation Team.” During the training, teams begin developing a plan for bringing RULER back to their school, starting with how they will train the rest of their school staff. For school-based RULER Implementation Teams, each team must include at least one school administrator (principal, assistant principal, or dean of students) plus at least two teachers or mental health professionals. Need guidance on choosing an implementation team? Check out our “Choosing an Implementation Team” page.
