RULER Program

 

NEW FAMILIES: Join us for a RULER Workshop on Monday, October 30 at 8:30 AM. This workshop is aimed at parents who are new to the RULER program but all parents are welcome. If you were unable to attend any of  last year’s RULER workshops or would just like a refresher, please come!
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.
