Emotionally Intelligent Schools

Increase academic performance while improving school culture

Limited Participation Available for the 1st RULER Cohort in 2016-17!

The RULER approach is a research- and evidence-based initiative shown to boost emotional intelligence, improve academic achievement, decrease behavioral issues, and enrich school and classroom climates. Marc Brackett, PhD, Director of the Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence, will provide the initial training for year one and Oakland Schools will sustain this training by providing the needed support and resources in order to continue the implementation process for years to come.
