Hi there! ✨

This article will help teach you about the Portal’s DESSA (SEL) Reports and how to generate them for your students.

Overview

What is the DESSA (SEL) Report?

The DESSA (SEL) Report is a PDF document that you can generate from the Portal that is intended to be sent to a student’s family to share important social-emotional learning information. Each DESSA (SEL) Report generated for a given student includes information about social-emotional learning and the DESSA (SEL) assessment, your school’s contact number, and that student’s DESSA (SEL) ratings for the current school year.
