Social & Emotional Learning (SEL) Parent Resources
The following are resources for our parents to learn more about Social Emotional Learning and the core competencies we are supporting in the schools.
Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) is the process through which children and adults acquire the knowledge, attitudes, and skills they need to:
- recognize and manage their emotions;
- demonstrate caring and concern for others;
- establish positive relationships;
- make responsible decisions; and
- handle challenging situations constructively.
Quality SEL instruction in which students learn to process, integrate, and selectively apply SEL skills in developmentally, contextually and culturally appropriate ways in conjunction with a safe, caring, participatory and responsive school climate can result in positive outcomes including:
- promotion of mental wellness;
- prevention of mental health issues;
- school connectedness;
- reduction in student absenteeism; and
- improved academic outcomes.
