RULER is an acronym that stands for the five key emotion skills of Recognizing, Understanding, Labeling, Expressing, and Regulating Emotions. The program aims to infuse the principles of emotional intelligence into the immune system of schools, enhancing how students learn, teachers teach, families, parents, and leaders lead.
There is strong evidence that the program and its tools continue to prove that it’s a success for schools that implement the program versus schools without it. The program has been adopted successfully by over 2,700 highly diverse public and private schools across the United States and in other countries, including Australia, China, England, Italy, Mexico, and Spain.
RULER supports school communities in understanding the value of emotions, building the skills of emotional intelligence, and creating and maintaining positive climates.
They have a strong commitment for diversity, equity, inclusion (DEI) and antiracism. RULER can offer your school training packages, subscriptions, district leadership packages and support to help your school get started.
