Open Circle has developed COVID-19 Resources to help our schools and districts support the children and families in their communities.

The Open Circle Team stands in solidarity with all people who are working for social justice and equity.

Welcome

Open Circle provides a unique, evidence-based social and emotional learning program for grades K-5. Working with administrators, educators, counselors, and staff from across the school, Open Circle aims to:

  • Proactively develop children’s skills for recognizing and managing emotions, empathy, positive relationships and problem solving
  • Help schools develop a community where students feel safe, cared for and engaged in learning.
