Welcome, Educators!
Through extensive research, we have observed a lack of executive functioning skills in students in classroom settings at both the elementary and high school levels. As a result, we have created a Social Skills Curriculum, titled Calming The Storm.  

Research indicates by implementing multiple social skills strategies, which allows students to ‘Calm their Storm’, student behaviors and academic performance are positively influenced.

MDE Alignment 
The Minnesota Department of Education (MDE) has adopted a central strategy that focuses on Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) targeting bullying and school climate improvemnt, which keeps the state in compliance with The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). According to the Collaborative for Academic, Social and Emotional Learning (CASEL), developing competencies in students' abilities to manage emotions, setting goals, establishing relationships, and making responsible decisions supports their success in school and life.

Our Program, Calming The Storm (CTS), has been designed to facilitate and promote CASEL's framework for social and emotional learning competencies, which are:
* Relationship Skills
* Self-awareness
* Self-management
* Social Awareness
* Responsible Decision-making

We are confident our CTS Model will provide students,  teachers, districts, parents, and communities the necessary skills and tools to fully implement a successful SEL program.

Everything About CTS
