Steps to Schoolwide Success

Systemic Practices for Connecting Social-Emotional and Academic Learning
Stacey A. Rutledge, Marisa Cannata, Stephanie L. Brown, and Daniel G. Traeger

Steps to Schoolwide Success makes a powerful case for the implementation of a school reform that bridges academic and social-emotional learning systems in high schools. Based on a multi-year project in Broward County, Florida, the book describes how the biggest difference in academic success from school to school was not in instructional practice but in the systematic attention to personal relationships between adults and students. In the higher performing schools, educators made deliberate efforts to engage with students; established organizational structures to support students; and encouraged a language and culture of personalization.
