would  be HB  25, "An  Act relating  to the  duties of  the state

REPRESENTATIVE HOPKINS,  as prime  sponsor of HB  25, highlighted                                                               
the  need  for  social-emotional  learning  (SEL)  for  students,                                                               
including  skills such  as coping,  resiliency, cooperation,  and                                                               
empathy.   He  highlighted the  efforts of  the Matanuska-Susitna                                                               
Borough  School   District  (MSBSD)  and  the   Anchorage  School

skills.   He  recalled  the testimony  of a  teacher  in a  House                                                               
Education  Standing Committee  meeting  from  the previous  year,                                                               
where she  told the story of  her students trying to  process the                                                               
death of one of their peers from  suicide.  He went on to provide                                                               
other  specific  examples  of   teachers  who  had  helped  their                                                               
students process emotions and return to learning.                                                                               
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE  HOPKINS  stated  that  HB  25  does  not  mandate                                                               
anything for  school districts,  as the  SEL requirements  in the                                                               
bill fall  outside the  core curricula mandated  by the  State of                                                               
Alaska  Department of  Education  and  Early Development  (DEED).                                                               
However,  he  noted,  most  districts  in  the  state  have  some                                                               
semblance  of a  standard  for SEL.   He  noted  that schools  in                                                               
Fairbanks have  received a  grant to  provide counseling  and are                                                               
observing the  results of that  pilot program.  He  noted letters                                                               
of support  from the  Alaska Gateway  School District  (AGSD) and                                                               
Kenai Peninsula  Borough School District (KPBSD),  which spoke to                                                               
the need for SEL standards to be in place statewide.                                                                            
                                                                                                                                
9:12:58 AM                                                                                                                    
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE  HOPKINS  acknowledged  concerns from  a  previous                                                               
budget  subcommittee  that the  bill  could  turn into  a  social                                                               
program or result  in the teaching of  religion or anti-religion.                                                               
He stated  that the  bill would  provide a  way for  districts to                                                               
avoid that problem  by seeing standards developed  by experts and                                                               
leaders  in  education  adopted  at   the  state  level.    These                                                               
standards  would provide  the districts  with proper  guidance in                                                               
order to  avoid conflicts.   He brought  attention to  the fiscal                                                               
note, which  supported his position  that the standards  would be                                                               
developed by experts in the field, not at the legislative level.                                                                
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE  HOPKINS   addressed  the  question  of   why  the                                                               
proposed bill  should be  passed if  many districts  already have                                                               
standards in  place, stating  that industry  is asking  for these                                                               
skills.    He  listed  the  skills  that  the  Collaborative  for                                                               
Academic, Social,  and Emotional  Learning (CASEL)  standards and                                                               
industry  standards  have in  common,  including:   working  with                                                               
others; honesty  and integrity; pride  and productivity  in work;                                                               
respect  for  others; responsibility;  self-discipline;  manners,                                                               
goal-setting; and problem solving and  managing stress.  He added                                                               
that  educators  also seek  these  skills,  as evidenced  by  the                                                               
testimony  of  Dr. Keith  Hamilton  in  his earlier  confirmation                                                               
hearing.   Furthermore, he  stated, SEL is  the most  desired and                                                               
attended professional  development for educators in  Alaska as it                                                               
allows  teachers to  become better  mentors and  role models  for                                                               
their students.                                                                                                                 
                                                                                                                                
He stated  further that  districts also desire  SEL, as  shown by                                                               
the letters of  support from AGSD and KPBSD, as  well as from the                                                               
Association of  Alaska School  Boards (AASB).   He referred  to a                                                               
presentation in a committee meeting  from a previous year by Mark                                                               
Foster,  the former  chief financial  officer  for the  Anchorage                                                               
School District.   In that  presentation, Mr. Foster  pointed out                                                               
that  the  strongest indicator  for  future  success in  students                                                               
after  school was  SEL  skills, he  stated.   He  said that  pre-                                                               
kindergarten (pre-K)  guidelines for  SEL have existed  in Alaska                                                               
since  2008.   However,  he stated,  SEL  is practically  ignored                                                               
after kindergarten.  He reiterated  that SEL is just as important                                                               
for a graduating 18-year-old as it is for a 5-year-old.                                                                         
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE HOPKINS  reminded the  committee that HB  25 would                                                               
mandate  nothing for  school districts;  it simply  would provide                                                               
guidelines for them to create  their own programs.  The standards                                                               
created  by HB  25 would  allow  districts to  spend their  money                                                               
wisely in  creating these programs,  he stated.  He  recalled the                                                               
earlier  testimony of  Dr.  Keith Hamilton,  who  found that  the                                                               
greatest  issues facing  students were  trauma and  truancy.   He                                                               
said SEL  provides the tools  necessary to face these  issues and                                                               
continue  to  learn  and  develop.     He  recalled  the  earlier                                                               
testimony of Jeffrey Erickson, who  touted the benefits of sports                                                               
and activities in promoting confidence  and leadership, and added                                                               
that  those skills  should be  taught in  school and  at home  as                                                               
well.  He stated that  CASEL implementation involves listening to                                                               
parents to  ensure that lessons  apply to a student's  home life.                                                               
He reiterated that the bill  is essential to student development,                                                               
recalling  public  testimony  at  a  FNSBSD  Board  of  Education                                                               
meeting demanding  that students return  to school due to  a lack                                                               
of social interaction  and progress in SEL.  He  closed by saying                                                               
that parents, districts, educators,  and industry all demand SEL,                                                               
and that is why HB 25 was created.

emotional  framework  for students.    She  emphasized that  this                                                               
approach is  especially important in  Alaska, where the  needs of                                                               
one community may  be very different from those of  another.  She                                                               
stated  that CASEL's  collaborative process  has been  adopted in

just one  SEL organization,  and the state  will not  mandate the                                                               
use of  one organization  or another, she  said.   She reiterated                                                               
that districts would have the  flexibility to adopt standards and                                                               
programs that are most appropriate for them.                                                                                    
                                                                                                                                
MS. CLUCAS  continued to  a diagram of  the CASEL  SEL framework,

self-awareness  and self-management  were  critical to  integrity

importance  of  social awareness  in  conflict  resolution.   She

REPRESENTATIVE HOPKINS responded that  HB 25 would give districts

of  the  bill and  asked  why  districts  don't simply  copy  the                                                               
standards in place in the Mat-Su and Anchorage School Districts.                                                                
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE HOPKINS reiterated that  the bill does not mandate                                                               
the standards,  but simply lays  them out for the  districts that                                                               
would  like to  use  them.   He  noted  that  every district  has                                                               
different  needs  and challenges  and  just  copying and  pasting                                                               
program standards across districts will not serve their needs.

opposition to  grants taken on  by the  State of Alaska  Board of

were working towards  the same goals.  He also  noted that in his

training on how to be a  good coworker will not be beneficial for

REPRESENTATIVE  GILLHAM   asked  if  HB  25   lays  out  specific

REPRESENTATIVE HOPKINS answered no,  it does not provide specific                                                               
guidelines,   but   would   instead  bring   together   teachers,

order to  figure out what those  standards should look like.   He                                                               
stated that he  does not know what those answers  would be, as he                                                               
has  never  taught  in  the  classroom, and  HB  25  would  bring                                                               
together the people who do.                                                                                                     
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE  GILLHAM noted  that some  districts already  have                                                               
standards  and introducing  new  specifics would  take away  from

REPRESENTATIVE STORY  asked if the  intent of  HB 25 is  to bring                                                               
together  educators  from  the community  to  help  develop  best                                                               
practice  programs  which  would   then  be  available  to  other                                                               
districts with no program in place.                                                                                             
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE  HOPKINS   noted  that   there  will   be  invited                                                               
testimony in  a future  hearing from AASB  and other  groups that                                                               
would work to implement the programs  across the state level.  He                                                               
stated that he was unsure  of what their discussions would entail                                                               
but  guessed  that their  approach  would  be to  identify  which                                                               
programs and curricula would be  relevant to the needs of Alaska.                                                               
He reiterated  that the invited  testimony would shed  more light                                                               
on what exactly that will look like.                                                                                            
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE  STORY  offered  her   understand  that  "this  is                                                               
something  that is  implemented  throughout the  school day"  via                                                               
guidelines rather than specific programs.

REPRESENTATIVE  CRONK asked  whether  standards, if  implemented,                                                               
would be the same standards used in the state grant program.                                                                    
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE  HOPKINS replied  no, the  $9.1 million  specified

and would not direct how the money  must be spent.  He stated the

CO-CHAIR DRUMMOND  asked if the  fiscal note  that Representative                                                               
Hopkins referenced is from a previous iteration of HB 25.                                                                       
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE  HOPKINS  stated that  it  is  a new  fiscal  note

packet.  He  noted that the fiscal note was  $30,000 dollars less

that the  collaborators would perform their  work remotely rather
