The C.A.R.E.S. Standards for a Course of Study were developed as the foundation for the Fly Five curriculum in response to the growing emphasis on SEL standards across the United States.The Standards are based on the five C.A.R.E.S. competencies (cooperation, assertiveness, responsibility, empathy, and self-control), which align with CASEL’s SEL framework and were designed to meet the goals outlined in state standards for SEL instruction. Below, you will find profiles of the 11 states that have adopted SEL standards along with one-to-one comparisons outlining how these state goals map to the C.A.R.E.S. Standards.
