“Effective SEL resources equip students with life skills and strategies for managing stress and change while building perseverance and resilience—all skills that are important, particularly in the midst of the challenges we are experiencing today,” said Chris Porter, CEO, Apex Learning. “To fully support the academic needs of students, we must also support their social and emotional needs. This partnership with Suite360 allows us to continue to provide standards-aligned, student centered learning backed by powerful efficacy data, now with the ability to offer essential life skills supporting the needs of the whole child.”

The Suite360:Student program covers a wide range of SEL and mental health issues, including bullying, digital citizenship, conflict resolution, respect, racial tolerance, anxiety, academic pressure, vaping and drug and alcohol awareness. Suite360:Mental Health covers strategies for healthy coping skills, reducing stigma, awareness of mental health resources and suicide prevention. Suite360:Intervention provides restorative programming to students who commit infractions. Suite360:Parent and Suite360:Staff assure that all stakeholders are involved and equipped to help students be successful.

Web and mobile Suite360 lessons are available in multiple languages. Suite360 offers research and evidence-backed learning materials mapped to the standards developed by the National Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL) and designed to meet grade-level learning objectives.

All Suite360 programs can be accessed in school or at home on any web-enabled device, and they all include Suite360 programs include Pulse surveys. These surveys provide a snapshot of student dispositions, attitudes and school climate throughout the year.
