Domain 5: 
Students’ Social, Emotional, and Health Needs Students can only learn when their most basic needs are being met. We are aware that there are many issues that students face on a daily basis that affect learning and Domain 5 is the beginning of a broader conversation and plan to support children. Issues such as diversity, mental health, and social isolation must all be addressed in a manner that is inclusive and supportive.
