RULER Program

RULER GRAPHIC

The RULER program was developed by the Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence, where they teach people of all ages how to develop their emotional intelligence to create a more effective and compassionate society.

This year we rolled out the RULER program at PS 166 as our approach to social and emotional learning. Studies show that RULER programming improves academic performance, decreases aggressive behavior, and enhances learning climates.

To support the RULER program at home, visit our RULER page for resources.
