Implementation Support

Success in implementing evidence-based programs and practices in social emotional learning requires careful planning to guide implementation and a commitment to ongoing quality improvement and evaluation. At 3DL, we partner with schools and youth organizations to help them succeed at all phases of the implementation process.

Framework for Quality SEL Programs


The 3DL Framework for Visioning, Planning, Implementing, and Sustaining quality SEL programs builds on principles and practices of implementation science and Design-Based Implementation Research. Both underscore the value of collaboration, data-driven decision-making, and ongoing refinement of programs to support program quality and sustainability.

The 3DL framework is organized around four phases in which research partners and schools or districts work in collaboration to envision, select, implement, and evaluate SEL programs. The framework provides an overview of how we position our services and expertise within these phases to support high quality programming and sustainability
