One, three, or five years of schoolwide access to Second Step SEL for Adults for all staff at a single school (Grades K–12), including all learnings, resources, and implementation supports. For details, please see the License Agreement.


  • The first two years of the program are divided into four semester-long modules that align with adult SEL domains of relationships, emotions and stress, equity, and self-efficacy and collective teacher efficacy.
  • The program’s four foundational modules are:
    • Module 1: Building Trust
    • Module 2: Managing Stress
    • Module 3: Equity & Belonging
    • Module 4: Resilience & Efficacy
  • Each module contains four units. Each unit consists of four to eight on-demand, independent microlearnings (approximately 60 to 90 minutes per unit) as well as small-group learning (approximately 30 minutes per unit). Over the course of one school year, staff and school leaders will move through eight units (two modules).
  • For staff, the total time required is approximately 15 to 16 hours for the entire year. Leaders should plan for an additional two to three hours at the beginning of the year to complete the Leader Implementation Plan and kick off the program.
