Social-Emotional Learning

Consistent with the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) and Collaborative for Social Emotional Learning (CASEL), the District describes Social Emotional Learning (SEL) as the process through which all young people and adults acquire and apply the knowledge, skills, and attitudes to develop healthy identities, manage emotions and achieve personal and collective goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain supportive relationships, and make responsible and caring decisions.
SEL skills help all young people and adults thrive personally and academically, develop and maintain positive relationships, become lifelong learners, and contribute to a more caring and just world.  
The district has developed a Social Emotional Learning and Mental Health (SELMH) Framework that clearly articulates proactive and responsive social, emotional, behavioral, and mental health practices and provides direction on how to implement these practices with fidelity through a multi-tiered system of support.

When fully implemented, you will see SEL woven throughout all classrooms, across the school building, and in the broader school community.  Our goal as a district is to ensure every student learns within an environment that provides: explicit SEL Instruction, SEL integrated with academic instruction, opportunities for youth voice and engagement, supportive school and classroom climates, and partnerships with family and community members that enhance and support the learning experience of all students.
