Social Emotional Learning

  • Social Emotional Learning 

    Teachers will integrate social emotional learning (SEL) into each class.

    Elementary students will be provided with social emotional learning (SEL) that will be embedded in each school day either through in-person instruction or synchronously through a Zoom session. The District utilizes the Second Step curriculum along with a variety of other evidence-based resources in an effort to integrate PBIS, SEL, Culturally & Trauma Responsive, and Restorative Practices into classroom instruction.

    Second Step has created a COVID-19 Response page which provides resources for teachers and families and a Back to School series which will be released in August to support the transition back to school.

    Secondary students will have access to the integration of social-emotional evidence-based practices during academic coursework, including advisory sessions. Additional, social-emotional learning may be accessed through school counseling activities.

    Elementary and secondary students will receive school counseling services as needed through synchronous Zoom sessions or phone calls.
