Social-Emotional Learning (SEL)
We believe in providing authentic opportunities for children and adults to continuously develop SEL skills through the context of social and academic experiences.
We believe that a positive culture and learning environment starts with adults. Adult self-regulation is necessary to foster relationships with students that contribute to social, emotional, and academic development and achievement.
We believe direct, explicit, and systemic instruction of SEL skills is important to incorporate into curriculum and raises achievement in all domains.
We believe SEL practices and activities should be assessed through an inclusive lens and be relevant to all students. SEL practices should affirm diverse cultures and backgrounds while strengthening practices that promote equity.
